"1 three-color collotype ... by the New York Photogravure Co., New York. This example from an auction catalogue has a reproduction of a Dutch painting done in three-color collotype which shows again the state of this art in its earliest stages.

This plate represents early attempts to reproduce paintings through color photography."--Hanson Collection catalog, p. 121
