The Lumière brothers, Auguste Marie Louis Nicolas (19 October 1862, Besançon, France – 10 April 1954, Lyon) and Louis Jean (5 October 1864, Besançon, France – 6 June 1948, Bandol), were among the first filmmakers in history. In the 1890s, the brothers stated that “the cinema is an invention without any future” and declined to sell their camera to other filmmakers such as Georges Méliès. This made many filmmakers upset. Consequently, their role in the history of film was exceedingly brief. In parallel with their cinema work, they experimented with color photography which patented in 1930 in France and first marketed in 1907. It was the principal color photography process in use before the advent of subtractive color film in the mid-1930s.
