ALMERY LOBEL-RICHE (French / 1877-1950)

Born to French parents in Geneva, Switzerland, Alméry Lobel-Riche was a towering figure in French print-making. He never formed part of any school, although there is a clear influence in his work of Symbolists* such as Félicien Rops and Impressionists such as Louis Legrand, as well as the classical example of Ingres.

The art of Alméry Lobel-Riche is characterized by a troubled and troubling atmosphere of decadent sensuality, and is very much the artistic counterpart of the poetry of Baudelaire and de Musset.

Lobel-Riche studied at the École des Beaux-Arts de Montpelier, and then under Léon Bonnat at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts*, Paris. His first success came when his drawings were accepted for publication by Le Rire in 1895. Although he did execute some pastels (mainly of fashionable women), the bulk of his work consists of etchings* and drypoints*.

Lobel-Riche is particularly known for his female nudes, elegant women, ballet dancers, depictions of bars and dance halls, and North African scenes. Alméry Lobel-Riche's real name was Alméric Riche.
