Portrait of a woman

Made:
c. 1910 in Bury Knowle House

An autochrome photograph portrait of a woman with a book, taken by Etheldreda Janet Laing, c. 1910.

The photograph is possibly a self-portrait. The autochrome process was the first really practicable and commercially successful process for colour photography. The autochrome process was comparatively slow and required a lot of light. Indoor photographs are therefore less common, most photographers preferring outdoor scenes in bright sunlight.
