a whiter shade...

"Lichtenberg says that very few people have ever seen pure white..." (Ludwig Wittgenstein: Remarks on Colour)

white may be said to represent light without which no colour can be seen
Leonardo da Vinci, Advice to Artists
white stretches back. was white created in the Big Bang? was the bang itself white?
from Derek Jarman: Chroma
whiteness and all grey colours between white and black, may be compounded of all colours, and the whiteness of the Sun's light is compounded of all the primary colours mix'd in a due proportion
Sir Isaac Newton: Opticks
white shuts out, is opaque, you cannot see through it. power-crazed white.
from Derek Jarman: Chroma
