A WorldIn the early 1890s Lenz worked as a designer of banknotes in Buenos Aires. In 1897, after returning home, he became one of the founding members of the Secession in Vienna, and participated several times in its exhibitions. His One World, painted in 1899, recalls the typical stylistic features, intensified colour harmony, and dream-like fantasy world of the period. The Secession's periodical Ver Sacrum featured the work in the same year.
