Gabriel Loppe

1825 - 1913


He went to live in Dauphiné and then in Geneva, where he was the student of François Diday. In 1870, he built his own studio in Chamonix, which later became the Loppé museum. From 1881, he spent the winters in Paris. He was very well-known in England and exhibited regularly in London, where he became a member of the Royal Academy. He was also a mountaineer and he painted mountains, peaks and lakes in modulated light.
