Color names such as cuisse de nymphe, meant to express the “color of a passionate nymph’s thigh,” evoke sensuous imagery. In this case, a voluptuous Rubens figure might come to mind, a woman with generous, pale pink thighs that express contempt for our modern ideals of beauty. Her seductive, soft skin, set off perfectly against a Maroon black 85 background, lends wings to the viewer’s imagination. The black with highlights of mahogany red not only increases the sensuality of the composition, it is its precondition.

"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."
