On Color ...
Probably the most joyous moment in the whole history of painting was the moment when the incipient impressionists discovered light, and with it, color.
D. H. Lawrence
* An excerpt from 'Selected Essays.'
Painting is something that takes place among the colors, and ... one has to leave them alone completely, so that they can settle the matter among themselves. Their intercourse: this is the whole of painting.
Rainer Maria Rilke
* From 'Rilke's Letters on Cezanne.'
