When we speak of 'inner tonality' and 'inner harmony' of line, form, and color - we have in mind a 'something' that corresponds with something else to express this 'harmony'.  The inner tonality must contribute to the MEANING of an inner feeling.  And as vague as this feeling may be, in its turn it is always directed finally to something concrete, which finds an outer expression in colors, lines, and forms.  

Nevertheless, there are those that claim that such an approach denies the 'freedom' of feeling.  To counter our views and opinions, they may propose an aimless, vague, 'absolutely free' inner tonality, neither as a direction or as a means, but as an end in itself - as a summit of achievement - as finality.


Such a view of 'freedom' only 'frees' us from reason.
