The painter and engraver Almery Lobel-Riche was born in Geneva, Switzerland to parents of French descent. He is widely recognized for his images of elite society during the "Belle Epoque" as well as his numerous book illustrations.

Lobel-Riche began his artistic studies at the École des Beaux Arts in Montpellier and continued them in Paris under the tutelage of Bonnat. Success came quickly to him when the drawings he submitted to the newspaper "Le Rire" were immediately accepted for publication in 1895. It was his sensuous and elegant depictions of girls and women that truly made his mark.
