Harry Carmean's palette

This is a photo of one of Harry Carmean’s palettes which was used to create a number of spectacular paintings over the course of his career. It recently sold on ebay for a goodly sum to a collector. It was originally hand made by Carmean out of wood in the early 1980’s and its shape is Carmean’s own design. It has been structurally balanced so that the weight is distributed evenly throughout the palette making it easier to hold it for long amounts of time. Also shown are some paintings with Carmean’s palette in them.
