Title: Image display apparatus

Abstract: To effectively make a mesh of out lines between pixels by a pixel diffusion and at the same time to facilitate a focusing of an image by the observer, an optical filter for diffusing each pixel of a display device into a plurality of parts by utilizing diffraction or refraction is interposed between the display device having an image pattern in a mosaic form and an observer. The optical filter surface performs the pixel diffusion so that a sight angle, of a gap which does not pass light between the neighboring pixel after the pixel diffusion, as viewed from the observer on the focal plane on which the image displayed by the display device is observed by the predetermined observer is substantially a recognizable limit view angle of the observer.
