ALBERT LYNCH 2/3 – He specialised in painting female subjects, to which he brought a charming elegance and sophistication typical of such belle epoque paintings. He worked most often in pastel or watercolour, although he occasionally used oils, and he provided illustrations for two books, ‘La Dame aux Camelias’, by Dumas fils and ‘La Parisienne’ by Henry Becque.
ALBERT LYNCH 3/3 – He was made a Chevalier de la Legion d’honneur in 1901. He is actually more closely tied to the French genre artists of the late nineteenth century. His portraits, such as the present work, often have an engaging sweetness and subtle sensuality that make them highly desirable.
