Cool Idea: Manetone Pantone Painting

Graphic designer Tim Fraser Brown created a reproduction of Édouard Manet's "A Bar at the Folies-Bergère" entirely out of old Pantone chips. He painstakingly color matched over 5,000 chips onto a blank canvas over the course of four nights. The result is a bit Impressionism meets Pointillism, taking PMS to a new level of literalism. I love how all the details of the original painting, like the beer thought to cater to a British clientele, much debated by art cronies, are blurred. And, it's been said that Manet's painting is modern paraphrasing of "Las Meninas" by Diego Velázquez. I guess, in a way, "Manetone Pantone" is modern paraphrasing of "A Bar at the Folies-Bergère." It's certainly a heck of a lot cooler than my paint-swatch weaving . . .

I would hang this in my art room or if I still worked in advertising it would have been a cute idea for our studio. Those little chips can be pricey but you always end up with a billion extra pages that contain commonly used colors (we went through sheets and sheets of the page that had pms 185, the reddest red evah ;-)
