Josef Albers
“In order to change a color it is enough to change the colour of its background.”

Michel Eugene Chevreul
“Light is a thing that cannot be reproduced, but must be represented by something else – by colour.”

Paul Cezanne
“The chief function of colour should be to serve expression.”

Henri Matisse
“All colours arouse specific associative ideas…”

Yves Klein
