This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Le Havre, France, Albert Fleury became a landscape painter, muralist and teacher.  In the United States, he first made a reputaton in Chicago towards the end of the 19th century, arriving in 1888 to paint murals denoting the seasons Spring and Fall for the Chicago Auditorium.  He also did numerous city street scenes and other landscapes of which the Chicago Art Institute had a special exhibition in 1900.  He was a member of the Chicago Society of Etchers and the Chicago Water Color Society and was a teacher at the Chicago Art Institute.  In 1892, many of his works were destroyed in a fire in the Athenaeum Building where he had his studio.

In Paris, he had been the student of Henri Lehmann and Émile Renouf at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, and in 1880, he first exhibited at the Paris Salon.  He also worked as officer of public instruction, Officier d'Instruction Publique.

After emigrating to Chicago, he painted murals, gave private art lessons, and taught at the Chicago Art Institute.  He was a member of the Chicago Water Color Club.

He also painted in other parts of the country including Owatonna, Minnesota, where, towards the end of the century, he completed a mural commission at the Farmers National Bank, and in the West including Arizona where one of his paintings was Panorama of Grand Canyon from El Tovar.  The painting is in the Anchutz Collection of Denver.

In New Orleans in 1901 and 1902, he painted mural decorations over the proscenium arch of the newly built St. Charles Theatre.
