Albert de Belleroche was born in Swansea, Wales to a wealthy French family. In 1882 he moved to Paris and later shared a studio with John Singer Sargent. Although he trained as a painter, it is as a printmaker that de Belleroche excelled. His chosen medium was lithography, which he took beyond its commercial confines. De Belleroche made over 500 prints that were drawn directly on the stone and printed by the artist. He is best known for his portraiture in a belle époque style.
