Alfred-Louis Brunet-Debaines (1845-1939).
French painter and engraver specializing in street scenes and architectural views, he was the son of architect Charles-Louis-Fortuné Brunet-Debaines. He began studying at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1863 and attended the teachings of Maxime Lalanne and Jules Ferdinand Jacquemart. He exhibited his first etchings at the Salon in 1866. Invited to England in 1870 by writer Philip Gilbert Hamerton, he was commissioned to produce original etchings for the publications The Portfolio and Etching and Etchers. He spent much of his career in London and in Scotland, he regularly exhibited his works at the Royal Academy between 1872 and 1886. He was elected a member of the Royal Society of Painters-Etchers and Engravers. Many of his works appeared in The Art Journal, an annual Victorian publication dedicated to visual arts which used to publish original art prints by artists such as Axel Haig, James McNeill Whistler, Seymour Haden, Hubert von Herkomer, John MacWhirter, Birket Foster and others. His works can be seen in several French and British museums.
