As part of a literature and picture puzzle, the drawing «The feisty patient. Frederic and Catherine» appeared in 1932 in the «UHU», a magazine of the Ullstein publishing house in Berlin. Readers were asked to guess a romance novel based on an excerpt and an illustration by George Grosz. The literary model for the feisty patient is the novel «A Farewell to Arms» by Ernest Hemingway, translated into German in 1930, which is about the American Frederic, who fights on the Italian side in World War I and falls in love with a British nurse named Catherine. The experiences of the horrors of the war have pushed Grosz and Hemingway, who were enemies in the war, equally in an anti-militaristic direction. Later they were supposed to meet as friends in mutual admiration of their work.
