black‘Theoretically black is the absence of all color. And yet, conversely, black defines. Black lines generate a shape; black shadows throw that which is lighted into stark relief. Set against black, all colors step out and shine. A picture created only in black–a photograph for example–carves out that glimpse of the world as a sculpture of light and shadow.’ Life In Color (331).

lavender‘Of all the colors, purple smells the most luxuriant. Imagine fresh blossoms of lavender and rosemary gently crushed between thumb and forefinger. Breathe in the bouquet of deep red wine…. Ah, the taste of purple.’ Life In Color (345).

grant wood portraitGrant Wood (1891-1942), known for American Gothic (pictured), grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, ‘attended art schools in Minneapolis and Chicago, then traveled to Europe to study Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painting. There he first encountered the work of Jan Van Eyck, the 15th-century Flemish artist, and was struck by how the painter achieved great depth and detail in his works by layering thin glazes of color. When Wood returned to Iowa, he was determined to incorporate that kind of clarity into his own work, which is evident in the stylized fields and rolling hills of paintings like Midwest Vineyard and in the lit scenes and elongated shadows of Death On Ridge Road (1935) and The Midnight Ride Of Paul Revere (1931).’

maus by Art SpiegelmanArt Spiegelman (1948), whose parents were Holocaust survivors, ‘discovered a Nazi propaganda film depicting Jews as rats. So he tried out drawing a three-page comic about his father as a mouse [and the Nazis as cats], set partially in “Mauschwitz”.’ It became the graphic novel Maus ‘that would portray the horrors of life in Nazi Germany, but also give an unsentimental portrayal of his difficult relationship with his father.’
