Sépia, couleur de l’encre, teinte du temps

Abstract : Like basic colours, sepia may be among the most easily identified and clearly named colours, being the brown shade of old photographs and, as such, metonymically, the colour of time past. Although widely shared, that view is only partly correct as things are far more complex and sepia cannot be associated with one single value. Beyond its apparent simplicity, sepia might reflect the inherent ambiguity of the notion of mimesis, examined more specifically through the representation of the past and ultimately through the representation of time.
