"The theater of color must be composed like a verse by Mallarmé, like a page by Joyce: perfect and with pure contrasts, precise sequences; each element must be balanced with absolute precision with the right counterweight. Beauty rests on the power of suggestion, which allows the viewer to take part in the color spectacle."
Sonia Delaunay-Terk, quoted from: Harenberg Malerlexikon, Dortmund 2001, p. 264
