...A carefully made print from an anonymous c1914 autochrome plate. Autochrome was the original commercial color process, invented in 1904 by Auguste and Louis Lumiere. It was a positive color transparency, a slide. Prints made from these plates have a quality similar to pointillist paintings, and are quite beautiful. Click here to learn more.
