Quote of the Day (Painter Paul Klee, on Color)

“Color possesses me. I don't have to pursue it. It will possess me always, I know it. That is the meaning of this happy hour: Color and I are one. I am a painter.”—Exprssionist painter Paul Klee (1879-1940), diary entry for April 16, 1914, in Tunisia, in The Diaries of Paul Klee 1898-1918, edited by Felix Klee (1957, trans. 1965).

The image accompanying this post is from Klee’s Farbtafel (1930).
