The unimportant yellow thing on the bright orange table in Livingroom Group gives the foreground a life it would lose to the literal light pouring in through the windows at the back of the painting. Yellow as iconic and full of meaning is different than yellow when it figuratively represents light. Both are weighty. The bright unreal orange of the table reminds us the viewer that we are in a painting and justifies such a jolt of yellow.
