"Circling" belongs to a large group of works on the theme of "Stellar constellations", Fritz Winter created in 1932. Thee artist placed the celestial lights on a dark background like mysterious signs of a cosmic order. He wrote: "It needs more faith and more strength to make the invisible visible in a free design, instead of just confirming the visible and tangible as such. Werner Haftmann, who studied Winter's oeuvre extensively, wrote that Winter had found "glyphs", with which landscape could be expressed, since he was interested in the holistic images behind the detail of nature.
