Summary: Starting from the mechanisms of color vision, the way to represent colors in a 3-dimensional space is exposed. The various color spaces are then presented in detail, as well as the notions of additive and subtractive color mixing, equienergetic white, dominant and complementary color. The colorimetric instrumentation tools are presented, from normalized illuminants to spectrophotocolorimeters.
