"The characters in the paintings of Yvonne Melchers, through their tri-dimensional veracity, the intense yet soft light that envelops their profiles, and the artist’s extreme accuracy to detail, seem to physically and emotionally emerge from the canvas. In her paintings of objects, nature and landscapes we are captivated by the atmosphere and perfumes which seem to emanate from the canvas and make us dream. Yvonne Melchers always embraces the soul of the location of her paintings, whether this is her homeland The Netherlands or her adoptive country Italy."
Surgeon, author of novels and children’s books, presently Mayor of the town of Abbadia San Salvatore in Southern Tuscany and collector of her paintings.
