Works - RAL
Conceptual artwork RAL by German artist Carsten Becker who lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
The RAL colour matching system was implemented as the standard colour catalogue for production by the state authorities of the Weimar Republic. In this work Panzergrau, Sandgrau, Dunkelgelb the colours black grey (the paint on German tanks at the beginning of World War II, catalogued as RAL colour 46/7021), sand grey (the colour of German camouflage in Africa, removed from the RAL catalogue), and dark yellow (the first colour used for German infrared camouflage; numberless for reasons of state secrecy) were utilised in a triptych as part of a historical series on colour analysis.
