Leo  Steinberg                         July, 1920 – 13 March, 2011

I could watch the light change, how the light would fade and how darkness reclaimed itself. There was a peaceful cooperation. A cosmic politesse. I am a lover of  painting, and without the cooperation of light and the dark there would be no paintings and drawings.’

Leo Steinberg remembering the view from a hospital window in his final interview with Achim Hochdorfer, Artforum Oct 2011.
