The “transformation of the ‘wall’ through color,” wrote Fernand Léger in the 1920s, was “one of the most exciting problems of the new architecture.” By choosing colors according to their spatial functions, the “rectangle of four white walls became an elastic rectangle. I say elastic because each color applied, even when shaded, has a mobile effect. Visual distance becomes relative.” Ultramarine blues expand the rectangle; cerulean blues, of which this is the most powerful shade, lend a wall force and presence.

"Their colors are just unbelievably beautiful, whether the sun is shining, or it's rainy weather, or night, with every play of light they look different again. Incredible."
