Belgian painter Alfonse Van Besten (1865-1926) (pictured above) embraced technology, utilizing innovative color processes to transfer black and white photographs into vivid, at times lurid Autochromes.
The tableaux of his Autochromes (a technology patented by the Lumière brothers in 1903 and the first color photographic process developed on an industrial scale) are often bucolic and romantic.
Here is a dreamy Autochrome photo collection that he shot from 1910 to 1915.
