    "Stella embarked on a group of works between 1917 and 1922 that mirrored his convictions that the mission of art was the expression of hallucinatory visions...an imaginative realm in which earthbound realities were transformed into abstraction through the rarefied power of music, perfume, and color." (B. Haskell, Joseph Stella, exhibition catalogue, New York, 1994, p. 57)
