Catalogue Note

"Ardon was interested in expressing not only the nocturnal atmosphere - so congenial to his own temperament - but also that of the time of day when diffused light from the sky acquires a sublime quality, when there are no sharply-defined shapes, and much is left to our imagination: early morning, between dreaming and awakening, and early evening... In Daybreak, 1985-86... a glaring broad band of white is seen on top of the night's blackness, in which ivory patches try to break loose from the enveloping darkness." (Arturo Schwarz in "The Land of Israel", Mordechai Ardon: The Colors of Time, Tel Aviv Museum of Art and The Israel Museum Jerusalem, 2003, p. 30).
