OriginEdit

Grace Cossington Smith (1892 – 1984) was an Australian artist and pioneer of modernist painting in Australia and was instrumental in introducing Post-Impressionism to her home country. In a lot of her paintings she used bright, vibrant colors, especially yellow.

"Interior in Yellow" is a piece that she fell in love with as it was done in her and about her childhood home. When asked about it she stated that she was excited to express an interior with light that didn't come from the sun itself but from the colors of the room. Not being a religious person Smith couldn't help but say that it looked like heaven when she sat down to add the finishing touches to the painting. With yellow being her favorite color she would often sign her paintings in yellow to add just a little bit even when there was none in the main painting.

EffectsEdit

Smith loved it when people enjoyed her work however hated when people put their hands on her art. That admiration was imbued into her art. Eyesight has a yellow coloring to it (as if seeing through a yellow sheet of glass). Unless neutralized the effect will become permanent.
