Living int the Washington, DC area has many advantages…including several Vincent Van Gogh paintings on exhibit for up close enjoyment. One of my most memorable “I can’t believe I just did that!” moments was when I was viewing one of his paintings at the Phillip’s Collection. I became so entranced by how little flicks of paint so perfectly came to resemble bunches of olive leaves that I reached out and touched the painting. Fully expecting to be escorted out of the museum by several guards, I was surprised that no one seemed to notice. (I’m sure they have updated their security in regards to touching priceless paintings in the ensuing years).
It is always interesting to see an artist’s colors schemes interpreted in new ways and Arthur Buxton’s Van Gogh pic charts do so while being aesthetically pleasing. You can read more about the charts here on Flavorwire. Buxton will be posting a key = which painting corresponds to which pie chart in the future. In the meantime, which pie chart represents the color scheme in your favorite Van Gogh painting?
