Artist and filmmaker Morgan Fisher took inspiration from a booklet his father’s pre-fabricated housing company produced in the 1930s and produced a series of paintings called Interior Color Beauty. The collection of monochromes are minimalist with color palettes based on the suggested color schemes for the interiors and exteriors of the homes.

The booklet, one of Fisher’s most prized possessions, inspired the personal series and saw him enlarging the paint chips into paintings on wooden panels while keeping the original proportions.
