This gallery exhibits the many different colors that we see throughout the day.

Breaking of Dawn, Yokoyama Taikan, 1940, From the collection of: Adachi Museum of Art
Lighter, more faded tones are used in this painting to reflect the start of daybreak.  Sometimes in the morning, after just having woken up, our vision appears blurry.
The Outer Harbour of Le Havre, Morning, Sun, Tide, Camille Pissarro, 1902, From the collection of: MuMa - Musée d'art moderne André Malraux
The light colors now have more value and are more indicative of the end of sunrise.  As the morning progresses so does our sight.
Summer afternoon, Templestowe, Louis Buvelot, 1866, From the collection of: National Gallery of Victoria
In the afternoon, the sun shines brightly and covers the world in it's warmth and luminosity.
Late Autumn Afternoon, George M. Bruestle, 1918, From the collection of: The Phillips Collection
Colors such as yellow, orange, and brown are more associated with the afternoon.
Cows at evening, Willem Maris, 1859 - 1910 (active), From the collection of: Kunstmuseum
In the evening, the sun begins to fade and shadows become just as enduring as people.  In terms of hues, darker shades are used.
Sky at sunset, Jamaica, West Indies, Frederic Edwin Church, 1865, From the collection of: Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum
During sunset, the sun puts on its own art show and transforms the sky into a brilliant aggregation of oranges and purples.  The sun is going away and it will soon become dark.
Sunset, Samuel Palmer, 1805–1881, British, active in Italy (1837–39), ca. 1861, From the collection of: Yale Center for British Art
The sun becomes more real and you can watch it, undoubtedly, move across the sky, downwards.
The Starry Night, Vincent van Gogh, 1889, From the collection of: MoMA The Museum of Modern Art
At night, a new light appears as the moon shines its own face.  Colors such as blue and black are more frequently used to imitate the darkness.
Night-Light, Yoo, Geun Taek, 2007, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
By midnight, the world becomes pitch black.  The artist depicts this painting as almost monochrome with the exception of yellow representing the man-made lighting.
