As Schwarz said himself “Colours are not just sensations on the retina, they are feelings and emotions.” He has painted himself in a yellow green palette, green generally being associated with balance and healing. Whatever one chooses to read into colour theory, the painting depicts a more relaxed version of himself than the 1940’s recent émigré portrait in red tones, which can be found in the exhibition case.
