Artist's description:

Naples Bather is expressive and painterly.

I thought I would write a very short summary of the colour Yellow to accompany my Bather artworks. Surveys in the United States, Canada and Europe have found Yellow is the colour most often associated with pleasure, optimism, spontaneity, gentleness, duplicity, and amusement, also envy and jealousy, and in Iran with connection and wisdom. In Asian culture, China in particular, it is the colour of glory, wisdom, harmony, happiness, and culture.

In Ancient Egypt yellow was associated with gold - this precious metal being eternal, indestructible and imperishable.

Extensive evidence has discovered the yellow pigment was used in ancient and prehistoric times.

In a letter written by Van Gogh to his sister in 1888 he said, "Now we are having beautiful warm, windless weather that is very beneficial to me. The sun, a light that for lack of a better word I can only call yellow, bright sulfur yellow, pale lemon gold. How beautiful yellow is!"
