° 5.9.1843. Studio listed as a branch of his firm in Paris [F], Rue Grange Batelière, 12. Indeed, at this address, where Delabarre operated from 1866 until 1871, Rodolphe-Ernest Robert, undoubtedly a relative of Emile, worked for a while. Robert-Ernest (° Melun [Seine et Marne, F], 1833) arrived from Lille [F], Rue Impériale, on 1.7.1866. The following year an advertisement appeared: "Photo-colour. The studio of A. Delabarre [...] has just reached an agreement with Emile-Robert, the painter-photographer and inventor of "photo-colour". This new process produces durable prints and portraits painted with a rare perfection at the same price, so to speak, as black-and-white photographs. You can judge the extraordinary results achieved by this invention by coming and seeing the prints displayed at "Photographie Parisienne", 36, Rue Fossé aux Loups" (La Belgique, 19.8.1867 passim until 31.12.1867; also Journal de Bruxelles, 22.11.1867). The Paris firm went bankrupt in March 1870.
