New Gallery: The Rothschild autochromes

Lionel had a passion for photography, and loved to experiment; it was inevitable that he would try his hand with the autochrome, and so he did, and with considerable success. Lionel’s earliest experiments appear to date from 1908 and by 1909 he was bringing back from his tour of Spain colour plates of Granada and other points en route. At home he began to take pictures in the gardens of his homes and portraits of family and friends. Browse the new Autochromes Gallery for a selection of these arresting images of a vanished world.
