Photographic Portraits of Famous Artist’s Paint Palettes by Matthias Schaller

By WM Staff August, 2018

We found this interesting:

"Since 2007 photographer Matthias Schaller has photographed raw, abstract paintings. The paintings however are not found on canvas, but rather smeared onto the tools used to craft each work of art—the palettes. His series, Das Meisterstück (The Masterpiece), claims these behind-the-scene objects as portraits of the artist, while also giving a direct insight into the detailed techniques performed by each painter." 

Apparently we're not very original this time as the same thing was published in Hyperallergic in 2015. Oh well, that's show business...WM
