Fox & Ratty cartoon of the day: Trichromy in Photography
I made this cartoon for an old friend of mine who's a collector and a specialist in History of Photography, like my hubby and my late Dad. This one is about the invention of colour photography by the French Ducos du Hauron (circa 1868). He was using three coats of various colours; very difficult to manipulate but the results were amazing (you can see a view of Agen, his town, here).
Translation: "Meanwhile, in Ducos du Hauron's workshop..." Ratty: "I'm afraid they're right. Trichromy will never work for portrait."
