‘’…he (Vantongerloo) set out on a path which was in fact chosen with the aim, not so much creating ‘works of art’, but rather as a way of making manifest his thoughts and discovering to what ends his ideas on painting and sculpture might lead. Or more precisely: his point of departure was not the wish to produce works of art but to present his ideas through colour and space… Vantongerloo’s was a quest for relationships, for structure and universal colour values’. These words apply equally well to Max Bill himself’.
