Kobaltblauw Citroengeel en Jan Vermeer

''Our task is not to solve problems, but to be aware of them, to bow our heads for them and also to prepare the eyes for never-ending delight and wonder. If you absolutely require discoveries, however, I am tell you that I am proud to have succeeded in combining a certain particularly intensive cobalt with a luminous lemonlike yellow, as well as recording the reflection of southern light that strikes through thick glass on to a grey wall….Allow us to continue our archaic procedure tot tell the world worlds of reconciliation and to speak of joy from recovered harmony, of the eternal desire reciprocated love''.

Letter attributed to Jan Vermeer. Painting Morris Louis.
