A colour chart with a difference this, a book, an exhibition and a website:
Color Chart addresses the impact of standardized, mass-produced color on the art of the past sixty years. [The book is] Published to accompany the major exhibition at MoMA, this vibrantly illustrated volume presents forty-four artists - including Ellsworth Kelly, Gerhard Richter, Damien Hirst, and Sherrie Levine - who explore the double meaning of "ready-made color": color bought off the shelf, rather than mixed on a palette, and color assigned by chance or arbitrary system rather than composed with traditional chromatic harmonies in mind. Includes 280 color illustrations.
