Beautiful Color Portraits of The Lumière Brothers' Daughters in the 1910s

Louis Lumière had already invented instant photographic plates and the Cinematograph when, in late 1903, he and his brother Auguste patented a new process for producing colour photographs: the Autochrome. A new plant was built in 1905 exclusively for this production and after several years the marketing of the product was launched in 1907.

When testing his first manually produced colors plates, Louis Lumière used his family circle as one of the first subjects for the Autochrome. After the launch of the plates, the Lumière brothers would simply and naturally take many photographs of the family in colors, during privileged moments such as holidays and everyday life, and to shoot portraits. Here are some gorgeous color portraits of the Lumière Brothers' daughters in the 1910s.
