Microphotography of the Autochrome trichromatic selection mosaic, made of dyed potato starch grains (7000 grains / mm2) 
n.d.
Louis Lumière (1864–1948) markets the first commercial three color photography process - Autochrome Lumière. The process had been patented in 1904 but it was only in 1907 that the plates were available from their factory at Lyon.
 
Alfred Stieglitz, wrote in a letter from Munich (July 1907) "All are amazed at the remarkably truthful color rendering; the wonderful luminosity of the shadows…, the endless range of grays; the richness of the deep colors. In short, soon the world will be color-mad, and Lumière will be responsible."
 
In an article published in the October 1907 issue of Camera Work, Stieglitz wrote: "Color photography is an accomplished fact. The seemingly everlasting question whether color would ever be within the reach of the photographer has been definitely answered. The answer the Lumières, of France, have supplied. For fourteen years, it is related, they have been seeking it. Thanks to their science, perseverance, and patience, practical application and unlimited means, these men have finally achieved what many of us had looked upon practically as unachievable…."
