“A dark object appears to be smaller than a light one of the same size,” wrote Goethe, referring to the reserved and withdrawn property of black colors. This blue-green shade is particularly pronounced in this respect. Goethe mentions the second property of blacks with the same precision: “A gray picture in front of a black background appears to be much lighter than the same picture in front of a white one.” This applies to more than gray pictures – a background painted with Turquoise black 85 turns people and objects into dancing stars.

"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."
