Antonin Personnaz’s Autochrome of the early 20th Century France

Art collector Antonin Personnaz took autochrome pictures of France’s Oise Valley between 1907 and 1914. He resembled the work of artists he knew, such as Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Albert Lebourg and Jean-François Raffaelli, Camille Pissarro and Paul Gachet, with his dreamy, impressionistic photographs. He joined the Société française de photographie in 1896 and the Société d’excursion des amateurs de photographie in 1900, an excursion group for amateur photographers.

From 1903 to 1905, he wrote essays on Pissarro and art processes in photography and photographs of Pissarro in his studio. After winning prizes in photography contests, he began working with autochromes, a technique invented by his brothers Auguste and Louis Lumière, after winning awards in photography contests. He made more than a thousand plates in that medium, whose grainy rendering gives the work an impressionist quality.
