Purpose:  The aim was to make a posthumous diagnosis of the abnormal colour vision of the acclaimed artist Clifton Pugh and to analyse his use of colours to discern the strategies he used to overcome his limited colour perception. 
Colour blind artists: do the Vischeck transformations work?
  • J. Spalding
  • Medicine
  • Clinical & experimental optometry

TLDR
Observations of the transformations of the paintings by Clifton Pugh that are reproduced in Figure 3 of the Cole and Harris paper, each one paired with a Vischeck transformation to how Pugh saw the colours of his own paintings. Expand
Vision, eye disease, and art: 2015 Keeler Lecture
TLDR
Some ways in which understanding vision and eye disease give insight into art are demonstrated, and thereby an appreciation of both art and ophthalmology is demonstrated. Expand
Eye For An Eye
TLDR
Artist David Lyons and computer scientist David Flatla work collaboratively to create art that intentionally targets audiences of varying visual abilities mediated through smart device interfaces to explore the idea that artwork can be intentionally created to be experienced differently dependent on one's visual abilities.

TRICHROMATIC AND DICHROMATIC COLORIMETRIC ANALYSES OF THE FARNSWORTH-MUNSELL D-15 COLOR VISION TEST
This study investigated whether transformations that provide a qualitative rendering of redgreen dichromatic vision may be used to make quantitative predictions of dichromatic colour discrimination.Expand
La acromatopsia en la obra de Oliver Sacks
Oliver Sacks (1933-2015) has been one for the most prominent authors in scientific popularizing of neurology. His works stimulated the interest of public in this field, but Sacks’s contribution inExpand
Does Dichromatic Color Simulation Predict Color Identification Error Rates?

TLDR
It is suggested that it may be sufficient to calculate the color difference only in color-normal space to determine whether the colors will be confused by a person with a congenital color vision defect. Expand

TWO ARTISTS WITH PROTAN COLOUR VISION DEFECTS
Two artists, one a protanope and the other protanomalous, were given tests of colour vision, including anomaloscope tests. Both knew that they had some kind of colour vision defect, but bothExpand
An artist with extreme deuteranomaly
TLDR
It seems that no major artist has been shown to have a colour vision defect, but there has been only one report of a deuter‐anomalous artist and no detailed report of one with extreme deuteranomaly. Expand

"Ghost Ship" reveals the color-defective artist's typical preference for blue and yellow, as seen normally and as seen with a color vision defect. Expand
The dilemma of color deficiency and art.
TLDR
The work and commentary of a color-deficient artist who works currently in Paris are presented as an example, and it is instructive to know how proven color deficiency has influenced an artist's style. Expand
Search for coloured objects in natural surroundings by people with abnormal colour vision
Background:  People with abnormal colour vision often report difficulty seeing coloured berries and flowers in foliage, which suggests they will have a diminished capacity for visual search whenExpand
Diagnosing protan heterozygosity using the Medmont C‐100 colour vision test
TLDR
The Medmont C‐100 colour vision test measures relative spectral sensitivity using flicker photometry to differentiate protans and deutans and should be able to diagnose Schmidt's sign. Expand
Nothing is simple in colour vision and genetics
Journal compilation © 2006 Optometrists Association Australia could have had a deutan defect. This would require II 7 to be a protan carrier. If II 5 also brought into the Ponsford lineage a protanExpand
Silent substitution tests like the OSCAR and the Medmont C1OO can identify protan and deutan carriers of abnormal colour vision
TLDR
Some work I did with the OSCAR colour vision test when I was responsible for the Visual Functions Clinic at the Victorian College of Optometry in Melbourne in the 1980s was revisited and it was suggested that the O SCAR may have some potential for identifying heterozygotes. Expand
