Pierre David created this colour chart while in residence at the Museum of Modern Art in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. He photographed the skin complexion of forty MAM’s employees, listed and classified their flesh tones into an artist’s book in the shape of a colour chart. The backside of the object reveals the portraits of these individuals according to a similar chromatic gradation, from lightest to darkest.
