Born in Lima in 1851, Albert Lynch studied art at L'Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Paris and in the studios of the figure painters Gabriel Ferrier and Henri Lehmann and the landscape painter Jules Nšel.

He exhibited at the Salon from 1890 and was awarded a third class medal in that year, a first class medal in 1892, and a gold medal in 1900 at the Exposition Universelle. Lynch 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. He was made a Chevalier de la Legion d'honneur in 1901.
