Exhibition – Yellow

Double Head, Ivan EyreDouble Head, Ivan Eyre
  • Location: Ivan Eyre Gallery
  • Opening Date: October 22, 2012
  • Closing Date: March 31, 2013

This exhibition explores the use of yellows and ochres in Ivan Eyre’s paintings and drawings. The oldest yellow pigment is yellow ochre, which was among the first pigments used by humans. Egyptians and the ancient world made wide use of the mineral orpiment for a more brilliant yellow than yellow ochre. In the Middle Ages, Europeans manufactured lead tin yellow. They later imported Indian yellow and rediscovered the method for the production of Naples yellow, which was used by the Egyptians.

Bathers, Ivan Eyre

Modern chemistry led to the creation of many other yellows, including chrome yellow, cadmium yellow, lemon yellow, and cobalt yellow. In this exhibition, we see Ivan Eyre’s masterful use of yellows in paintings spanning the breadth of his career.
