A Cor segundo Goethe V - O Azul
Georgia O'Keeffe, Blue Morning Glories (1935)
-«(..) Its appearance, then, is a kind of contradiction between excitement and repose.
As the upper sky and distant mountains appear blue, so a blue surface seems to retire from us.
But as we readily follow an agreeable object that flies from us, so we love to contemplate blue — not because it advances to us, but because it draws us after it.»
Citado por Maria Popova, «Goethe on the Psychology of Color and Emotion - “Color itself is a degree of darkness.”»
