Historical referencesThe circular painting "Klarwelt der Seligen" by Elisar von Kupffer ( 1872-1942) is the center of the Elisarion - von Kupffers house in Minusio, Switzerland and was on display from 1939 in a rotunda added to the house.
The well known exhibition designer Harald Szeemann saved the painting from destruction in the 1970s when all of Kupffer's work was cleared out of the house.
