The blues

For most people involved in art the three nudes on the left probably look like bad colour matches for the famous Yves Klein blue as applied to a plaster nude in his 1982 Venus Bleu, Torso of Nude Blue. That one is in fact the nude on the right. The other three have been spinning round the web over the last couple of days as their ‘blues’ come not from art but from social media brands. From the left they are Facebook blue, Tumblr Blue and Twitter blue.
