Timeline of Historical Film Colors

An early three-color print by Louis Ducros Du Hauron, 1877Professor Barbara Flueckiger, Institute of Cinema Studies, University of Zurich, has created a database that traces the development of photographic and cinematic use of color. The database, based on her project Film History Re-mastered, provides descriptions, bibliographies and/or illustrations for each chromatic technology (choose “Show detailed information →” to access detail pages). It is worth noting that these pages are updated on a regular basis — so check back often.

For more information on the project itself, see the article Analysis of Film Colors in a Digital Humanities Perspective.
