Bombay is energetic, exuberant, sparkling, and has building stones of many kinds and colours ... on your dyspeptic days you are apt to find ... Bombay's [architecture] bumptious, even riotous. In your more genial moments you might apply the adjective ... 'vital'.
When Earth's last picture is painted and the tubes are twisted and dried, When the oldest colours have faded, and the youngest critic has died, We shall rest, and, faith, we shall need it lie down for an aeon or two, Till the Master of All Good Workmen shall put us to work anew!rudyard kipling
Is not a diamond that flashes all its colours into the heart of a poet as useful as the diamond with which the glazier divides the sheet of glass into panes of our windows ?
It's all changed now, which is why it mattered to those young men from Liverpool that they should be there to support their team.What other group isgoing to troop their colours for them, present them with scarves and emblems?Dame Beryl Margaret Bainbridge
There is continual spring, and harvest there Continual, both meeting at one time: For both the boughs do laughing blossoms bear, And with fresh colours deck the wanton prime, And eke attonce the heavy trees they climb, Which seem to labour under their fruits load: The whiles the joyous birds make their pastime Amongst the shady leaves, their sweet above, And their true loves without suspicion tell abroad.Edmund Spenser
All arts are taught by degrees. The first process in art of the painter is the composition of colours. Let your mind be afterwards applied to the study of the mixtures.
Liberte :, hurlement de couleurs crispe es, entrelacements des contraires et de toutes les contradictions, des grotesques, des inconse quences:. Freedom:, a howl of unnerving colours, intertwinings of contrarities and contradictions, of the grotesque, of inconsistencies:.
And since these things are so, we must suppose that there are contained many things and of all sorts in the things that are uniting, seeds of all things, with all sorts of shapes and colours and savoursAnaxagoras
Just as the eye was made to see colours, and the ear to hear sounds, so the human mind was made to understand, not whatever you please, but quantity.johannes kepler
I was trying to show colour, but I realized at the private view that the public were prisoners of a preconceived point of view and that, confronted with all these surfaces of different colours, they responded far more to the inter-relationship of the different propositions, they reconstituted the elements of a decorative polychromy.yves klein
Blue has no dimensions, it is beyond dimensions, whereas the other colours are not. They are pre-psychological expanses, red, for example, presupposing a site radiating heat. All colours arouse specific associative ideas, psychologically material or tangible, while blue suggests at most the sea and sky, and they, after all, are in actual, visible nature what is most abstract.yves klein
For 338 paragraphs the Franks report painted a splendid picture, delineated the light and the shade, and the glowing colours in it, and when Franks got to paragraph 339 he got fed up with the canvas he was painting and chucked a bucket of whitewash over it.james callaghan
Our conversations turned frequently on the two cardinal points of poetry, the power of exciting the sympathy of the reader by a faithful adherence to the truth of nature, and the power of giving the interest of novelty by the modifying colours of imagination.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I want my street to be crazy, I want my avenues, shops and buildings, to enter into a crazy dance, and this is why I deform and distort their outlines and colours. However I always come up against the same difficulty, that if all the elements were one by one deformed and distorted excessively, if in the end nothing remained of their real outlines, I would have totally effaced the location that I intended to suggest, that I wished to transform.jean dubuffet
I neither oblige the belief of other person, nor overhastily subscribe mine own. Nor have I stood with others computing or collating years and chronologies, lest I should be vainly curious about the time and circumstance of things, whereof the substance is so much in doubt. By this time, like one who had set out on his way by night, and travelled through a region of smooth or idle dreams, our history now arrives on the confines, where daylight and truth meet us with a clear dawn, representing to our view, though at a far distance, true colours and shapes.john milton
People will keep on taking them for theorists, when all they wanted was to paint in gay, bright colours, like the old masters.pierre-auguste renoir
Stood for his country’s glory fast, And nail’d her colours to the mast!walter scott
Minimal sculpture is composed of extremely simple, monumental geometric forms made of fibreglass , plastic , sheet metal, or aluminum , either left raw or solidly painted with bright industrial colours. Like the painters , minimalist sculptors attempted to make their works totally objective, unexpressive, and non-referential.
What had sounded like a great idea in the newsroom, ended up being the longest and most embarrassing moment of my life. Cameras clicked away and Pricasso kept rubbing his bum with colours of purple, pink and orange against my likeness.
Annie Besant’s book where she put forward the idea that theosophical mystical energies could be portrayed as colours or abstract shapes was practically the invention of abstract art. A lot of artists rushed out and read it and suddenly thought, ‘oh God you could, you could portray love as a colour, or depression as a colour” All of a sudden abstract art happens, a flowering out of occultism.
Sound trumpets! let our bloody colours wave! And either victory, or else a grave.
When Earth's last picture is painted, and the tubes are twisted and dried, When the oldest colours have faded, and the youngest critic has died, We shall rest, and faith, we shall need it lie down for an æon or two, Till the Master of All Good Workmen shall set us to work anew.rudyard kipling
Many a temptation comes to us in fine, gay colours that are but skin deep.matthew henry
They stript Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours.
"Yes," I answered you last night; "No," this morning, Sir, I say. colours seen by candlelight, Will not look the same by day.
