Any colour - so long as it's black.
The colour of the skin is in no way connected with strength of the mind or intellectual powers.
Sound is often talked about in a very subjective way, as if it had a colour. This is a bright sound, this is a dark sound. I don't believe in that because I think that is much too subjective.
I became intrigued with colour theory. The absurd pronouncements of the Colour Institute, a group that decides what colours are hot each year or season, amused me.
Pure drawing is an abstraction. Drawing and colour are not distinct, everything in nature is coloured.
Shadow is a colour as light is, but less brilliant; light and shadow are only the relation of two tones.
White... is not a mere absence of colour; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black... God paints in many colours; but He never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said so gaudily, as when He paints in white.

With the brush we merely tint, while the imagination alone produces colour.
I've never got on with the British press because they've always given me such a hard time. Once they build a band up they just want to do people down. They shouldn't concentrate on the colour of someone's shirt they should listen to the music.
When I was at Hartford in Connecticut, where I lived during the war, I published several pieces which were well received, not only by those of my own colour, but by a number of the white people, who thought they might do good among their servants.

Red is a colour I've felt very strongly about. Maybe red is a very Indian colour, maybe it's one of those things that I grew up with and recognise at some other level.

A colour is a physical object as soon as we consider its dependence, for instance, upon its luminous source, upon other colours, upon temperatures, upon spaces, and so forth.
Alfred Nobel stipulated that no distinction of race or colour will determine who received of his generosity.
Every form is a base for colour, every colour is the attribute of a form.
I've handled colour as a man should behave. You may conclude that I consider ethics and aesthetics as one.
