Albert Lynch was born in 1851 in Trujillo, Peru. At the age of 21 he began to study painting in Paris at the famous Ecole des Beaux-Arts. His teachers included Gabriel Ferrier, Henri Lehmann and Jules Achille Noël: his exhibitions at the Paris Salon in 1890 and 1892 were a great success. On the occasion of the 1900 World Exhibition he was awarded the gold medal. In 1901 he was accepted into the Legion of Honor. Unfortunately nothing is known about his family life.

He painted in watercolour, pastel and gouache, sometimes in oil. Like no other painter of his time, Lynch portrayed the carefreeness and elegance of the Belle Epoque. He used to depict individual glamorous ladies or entire groups of ladies. His works testify to a good eye for detail. Lynch was a master in capturing the personal moods of those he portrayed. Due to his outstanding achievements as a painter, he was consulted by famous writers of his time as a book illustrator. These included Alexandre Dumas (The Lady of the Camellias); Henry Becque (La Parisienne) and Honoré de Balzac (Father Goriot).

Not much is known about his private life. His exact date of birth and year of death are given differently by different biographers. There are also considerable discrepancies about the origin of his parents. Some think his father was half-Peruvian, half-Irish and his mother German. The others think his parents were both Irish. What is certain is that he was born in Peru. Furthermore, it is documented that he was able to live very well from his work and reached a high age by the standards of an artist at that time. The appointment as a member of the Legion of Honor is also something special. For many inventors, artists and writers, the world exhibition was the springboard to their career par excellence. The same applies to the gold medal of Albert Lynch. The less is known about an artist, the more mysterious and interesting he appears.

His pictures are important contemporary witnesses of the Belle Epoque. They are a good investment and enhance every room, whether modern or traditional. Some of his works are in strong colours. During this time, he mainly painted in muted colours. Albert Lynch was a true master in the representation of the ladies of that time. His book illustrations are among the best of that time. The more famous the authors, the more famous the illustrator. This also applies to Albert Lynch. Especially the books of Balzac and Dumas were still very popular during their lifetime. These illustrations naturally brought Lynch more fame as a painter. Commissioned paintings were less common at that time than in the Middle Ages, for example. But still Lynch received commissions for portraits of ladies. His pictures are not Degas or Da Vincis, but they are often bought by renowned buyers for the salons, reception halls and living rooms of high society © Meisterdrucke
