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. 
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
TLDR
Although the predicted arrangements using the minimum ΔEab * between adjacent caps were within the range of the actual dichromat arrangements, they were not always as good as the mean values when other possible arrangements were considered.
La acromatopsia en la obra de Oliver Sacks
TLDR
This paper analyzes Oliver Sacks’s works regarding achromatopsia, a disorder of retinal cones that produces a black and white vision, and reads these tales to understand how chromatically limited vision affected, or not, their personal and social life.

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.
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.
Colour blind artists: do the Vischeck transformations work?
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.

An artist, who claimed to be colour blind, kindly cooperated in efficient colour vision tests, two long discussions about his paintings with the writer, and allowed nine of his paintings to be photographed as colour transparencies.
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 both

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 when
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.
