Antonin Personnaz’s Autochrome Dreams Of Early 20th Century France


Between 1907 and 1914, art collector Antonin Personnaz (1854 – 31 December 1936) took autochrome pictures of France’s Oise Valley. His dreamy, impressionist-style photographs call to mind the work of the artists he knew, like Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Albert Lebourg and Jean-François Raffaelli, Camille Pissarro and Paul Gachet.

“Let us be inspired by their examples by seeking to translate the softest and most delicate colours in nature, and in this way we too will make a work of art” – Antonin Personnaz
