contrast and harmony

Via Public Domain Review and John Ptak’s Science Bookstore, comes the beautiful, modernist colour analysis charts of æsthetic maven Ms Emily Noyes Vanderpoel (1902), whose pixelated palettes look like something in between the works of artist Piet Mondriaan and Pong or Tetris tiles. From mummy-wrappings to butterfly wings, Vanderpoel’s plates stir the viewer’s imagination for composition and compliment. Pursue a gallery of dozens of deconstructed illustrations at the links at the top.
