Chateau de Chaumont, Loire Valley, France

...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.
