The Colours of Vincent van Gogh by The Information Lab

Vincent Van Gogh is remembered as one of the greatest painters of all time, and has created numerous works. The objective of this visualisation was to create something beautiful, with less emphasis on function.

Using the top 10 Van Gogh paintings from, and using Alteryx's R capabilities and Tableau to visualise, I created this visualisation.

The R code uses the png, grid and gridExtra libraries, and some K-means, it was able to create hex codes for the visualisations.

The design of the visualisation keeps this order for the top 10 paintings, and uses the output of the R model, mapping the different colours. It's not in order of 'most' or 'least' used, though this could be a next step.
