Eight different color appearance models were tested using pictorial images. A psychophysical paired comparison experiment was performed where 30 color-normal observers judged reference and test images via successive-Ganzfeld haploscopic viewing such that each eye maintained constant chromatic adaptation and inter-ocular interactions were minimized. It was found that models based on von Kries had best performance, specifically CIELAB, HUNT, RLAB, and von Kries.
