Das Meisterstück (The Masterpiece) ~ Matthias Schaller

May 15, 2015 @ ThisIsColossal

Photographic Portraits of Famous Artist’s Paint Palettes by Matthias Schaller. Since 2007 photographer Matthias Schaller has photographed raw, abstract paintings. The paintings however are not found on canvas, but rather smeared onto the tools used to craft each work of art—the palettes. His series, Das Meisterstück (The Masterpiece), claims these behind-the-scene objects as portraits of the artist, while also giving a direct insight into the detailed techniques performed by each painter.
