Combination of cotton fabric highlighted

Spoken for
“To express the love of two lovers by the marriage of two complementary colours,
their blending and their contrast,
the mysterious vibrations of related tones.
To express the thought of a brow by the radiance of a light tone against a dark background.
To express hope by some star.
Someone's passion by the radiance of the setting sun.
That's certainly no realistic trompe l'oeil, but something that really exists, isn't it?”

― Vincent van Gogh
