Black and Blue

Mark Rothko, No. 1, 1964 [Black-Form Paintings]

Black is like the silence of the body after death, the close of life.
Wassily Kandinsky, 1911.

Mark Rothko, No. 6(?), 1964 [Black-Form Paintings]

When [blue] sinks almost to black, it echoes a grief that is hardly human.
Wassily Kandinsky 1911

Mark Rothko, No. 7, 1964 [Black-Form Paintings]
