Lohse developed his sophisticated theories on autonomous, concrete painting during the early post-war years and, as of 1943, occupied himself almost entirely with horizontal and vertical arrangements, of which Eine und vier gleiche Gruppen is an early example. In order to avoid the slightest impression of artistic intuition or spontaneity, Lohse defined the individual parameters of each work before starting to paint. Numeric relationships form the foundation of his paintings, determining the format, number, and width of each stripe, the number of colors as well as their arrangement.
