|"Chroma" is the colourfulness relative to the brightness of another color that appears white under similar viewing conditions. The many greens in the park may be an example of that.|
I have edited this post to link to a Kate Wolf song called "Cornflower Blue" kindly suggested by EvenSong.

Matisse was considered the master of colour, and this fact may have accounted for the compelling and irresistible attraction that Claribel and Etta felt towards his art.To complete my goal of finding one musician each week previously unknown to me, I have chosen Guy Clark. I found him listed in "1000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die." His voice is rough and his melodies repetitious, but he is a story teller and he sure does know how to get around the guitar. The song mentioned in the book is called Old Number 1. He grew on me with each listening, and I'm pleased to have made his acquaintance. In his song,The Guitar, he does not sing. It is a narrative with guitar accompaniment, but I love his guitar performance and I love the story. Perhaps you will as well.
I have been pondering my own interest in Claribel and Etta. To me, the details of their lives are absolutely fascinating. Clearly, I am not alone, since at least one book has been written about them and the documentary that we saw at the museum goes into considerable detail about their personalities. They are written up on Wikipedia, and I also found this youtube account that appears to have been put together by a high school student. It touches on some of the facts that I find so compelling - their upbringing in a large Jewish-German immigrant family (12 children), their unusual independence in early 20th century society, Claribel's insistence on completing a medical degree (she was valedictorian of her class) in spite of her father's attempts to discourage her, their stuffing (the only word that seems appropriate) over 3,000 pieces of art into their apartment. I could go on and on. I do believe a feature film waits somewhere on the sidelines for the right time to make its appearance.
