“The black, the brown and the blue of Magnelli’s pictures are reminiscent of the colours of the frescoes of earlier Cretan eras. His works could provide something equivalent to these sublime and serene decorations. They are natural ornaments, without exaggeration and without overexertion […]” (quoted in: Hans Arp, preface to the exhibition of Magnelli in the Galerie René Drouin, Paris, 1947).
