A new color management system has been developed for high definition color recording and reproduction of art paintings. This system is consisted of high accurate multi-band camera, personal computer and projected type display. The multi-band camera is composed by five band filters and single chip CCD camera with 2048×2048 pixels. The reflectance spectra of each pixel of the object were estimated by using five band images within less than the average color difference ΔE*ab = 1.16. The spectral transmittance of five filters was determined by simulated annealing method and principal component analysis of spectral reflectance of paintings. Images of art paintings were reproduced onto the projection type monitor under the consideration of color appearance. In this paper, we describe methods to estimate of reflectance spectra of paintings from five band images, optimization of spectral transmittance of filters and color reproduction of paintings based on the color appearance models.
