These pie charts, created by Arthur Buxton, show the five most common colours in 28 of van Gogh’s most famous paintings (the size of the slice is the percentage of the painting it comprises). It shows van Gogh’s love for warm colours, yellows, browns, blues and greys. Such an intriguing idea as it really highlights how many artists and designers have a common colour palette from which they draw a lot of their work. I would love to see this idea expanding upon so we could find common themes among other icons. I bet Andy Warhol’s pie charts would be brilliant!
