Alméry Lobel-Riche (Alméric Riche ); 1877-1950 French painter, engraver and illustrator, studied at the Beaux-Arts in Montpellier and then in Paris from 1895. His first works illustrate novels in the form of a pamphlet, such as The Uncle Scipion by André Theuriet (1907). During the Second World War , Lobel - Riche chose to settle in Meymac , in the Corrèze, where his wife was born. During this forced stay, he practiced mainly painting, his engraving and lithography material remained in his Parisian studio. Because Lobel-Riche was an excellent painter, he has acquired his notoriety by his talent as an engraver, who mastered both the etching technique, the dry point and the woodcut.
