"'Beauford Delaney: The Color Yellow' . . . glows with this power. In these 26 paintings and drawings from 1943 to 1972, the artist explores the often shaky promise presented by this luminous color. Works ranging from portraits and cityscapes to abstractions are united by golden tones. And yet all is not carefree here. At times, Delaney's yellow can appear joyous or jaundiced, gentle or glaring, transcendent or tortured."
