In 1810, Goethe published his Theory of Colours, which he considered his most important work. In it, he characterized color as arising from the dynamic interplay of light and darkness, through the meditation of a cloudy medium. Although disputed,

Geothe´s last words are claimed to have been Light! More Light! In Faust, the devil makes a bet with God: he says that he can lure God’s favorite human being, Faust, away from righteous pursuits. The devil makes an arrangement with Faust: he will do everything that Faust wants, while he is here on Earth, and in exchange Faust will serve the devil in Hell. Faust agrees and signs the contract with a drop of his own blood.
