I have been trying to think of colour examples which are not paintings or drawings.
I have a soft spot for Eggelston's woman on a swing. There is now a whole industry of derived contemporary portrature by adolescents of all ages (I photograph my friends and my grandmother, but - eeeeewww - not my parents).
Madame Yevonde's more theatrical portraits leave me cold, but some of her private commissions have hit home with a strenght that surprises me. See here, here and here for examples. I don't *think* it's just the colour palette.
