Experimenting with the Zorn color

My better self’, 30x40 cm, oil on board. Colourlecture 2, using a TETRACHROME  palette, also known as the Zorn Palette, attributed to the Swedish artist, Anders Zorn (1860 – 1920). It consists of only 4 colors: yellow ochre, ivory black, vermilion (alt. permanent red) and titanium/zincwhite. A similar palette was first used by the famous Greek Painter Apelles from Colophon (370 bce),courtpainter from Alexander de Grote and most famous painter in Greek antiquity (according to Plinius in Naturalis Historia).

AFTER COVID CITY TRIP TIP3 : visit my second home ‘SWEDEN’ , MORA (Dalarna), the Zorn museum or the postponed exhibition in STOCKHOLM NATIONALMUSEUM, ‘Zorn en svensk superstjärna’ (18 feb- 29 August) ( if you missed the one in Kunstmuseum Den Haag). If you prefer a warmer climate go to NAPELS to see the tetrachromatic, 7x3,5 m ALEXANDER MOZAÏEK (house of Faun, pompei) in the Archeological National museum.
