The National Geographic published the first autochrome in 1914, it was the “Flower Garden in Gand” by Paul G. Guilumette. The photographic archives of the National Geographic contains more than 15,000 autochromes still perfectly preserved. The passion of Gilbert H. Grosvenor for photography led him to bring together 15 photographers who produced several autochromes from all over the world. In 1920 was inaugurated the first workshop in American publishing colors, giving way to the golden age of autochromes. Among the photographers who worked for the National Geographic Society include: Jules Gervais-Courtellemont, Hans Hildenbrand, Maynard Owen Williams and Clifton Adams.
