Catalogue Note

"I have claimed that it's the most aristocratic color in the world. Plus it is not black. Nothing is black. Nothing is one color. There are so many shadows and shades in it that are so subtle that it isn't quite black. But we, for a definition, for a label, call it black. It is very aristocratic. You can take almost anything and once it's black it has another meaning."
