Artist Palette Tray from The Met Museum


Celebrate the timelessness of art-making with this fun porcelain catchall tray, an amusing addition to your decor that is also handy for storing sundries. Artists through the ages have employed a host of tools and materials (like this clever trompe l’oeil palette), from Paleolithic mineral pigments to the newest digital technologies. Examples of artists’ tools in The Met include an ancient Egyptian paint box and Qing dynasty paintbrushes-as well as the actual painter’s palettes used by artists such as Balthus, Marc Chagall, Honoré Daumier, and Jacques Villon.
