Nudes in Yellow
There are three interesting facts regarding this painting. First, it is the largest of the nude studies, second, it is signed in the upper left corner, and third, it is the only male nude painting done by Dick that I know of. There are several sketches from his figure drawing days. Notice the large hands and feet.

I grouped this painting with the other because of the yellow. I believe it was an earlier study, do to the stiff approach to the hands.
