Alphonse J. Liébert (Liibert)

(1827-1913)

Artist associated with 6 portraits
Born in France in 1827, Liébert was interested in a range of photographic subjects as well as in experimentation with photographic processes. In 1851 he travelled to the United States where he established himself as a portraitist in San Francisco. He then returned to France in the 1860s, where he produced images of the Paris Commune as well as of building sites around Paris, recording, for example, the construction of the Opéra. He died in 1913. The National Portrait Gallery holds four of his photographs.
