A Quiet Read, Albert Lynch Albert Lynch, (Lima; 1851 - Lima; 1912), was a Peruvian painter. He settled in Paris, where he studied at l'École des Beaux-Arts. He showed his artwork in the Salon of French artists which he won in 1890 and 1892 and in the World's Fair of 1900 during which he received a gold medal. The women of his time were his favorite subject to paint and he preferred Pastel, Gouache and Watercolor although he occasionally worked in the Oil technique.
