To get this data, I created a script to scan five paintings from each of ten influential painters, completed at different points in their respective careers. It returned the 47 most common colours found in each, and from there the top five. I turned those results into the graph you see above, with reds on the inside, followed by oranges, yellows, greens, blues, violets, browns, and greys – each from lightest to darkest.
The 47 most common colours in each painting are below.
