When looking at an 18th century painting the other day, I realized the flower sash it featured had all of Pantone’s 2016 colors in it. Somewhat inspired by Movies in Color, we decided to put together a little graphic showing the color palettes from 17th-19th century paintings of ladies and flowers.
I find it amazing that after all these hundreds of years, art such as this is still so relevant. We as a society are still able to pull so much inspiration from these paintings. I know I do.
