Albert Robida Art

Albert Robida (Born in 1848) was born in Compiègne, France. He was an etcher, illustrator, caricaturist, lithographer, and novelist. Robida published and edited La Caricature magazine. The whole process took him 12 years. In the 1880s he wrote a highly praised trilogy of futuristic novels. Ten years later, he created more than five hundred illustrations for Giffard Pierre’s La Guerre Infernale which was a weekly serial. Robida was the founding father of science fiction art, and was among the early pioneers of science fiction. Despite suffering from severe myopia, as a child he had a strong passion for drawing. In his lifetime he was known basically for the art he provided for editions of luxury literary works by Honoré de Balzac, Charles Perrault, François Rabelais and others, as well as for many illustrated books on urban history and architecture of France. He died in 1926 in Neuilly. While in Paris, at age 19, he began his career as a caricaturist and an illustrator for an array of top Parisian magazines, such as Le Polichinelle and La Chronique illustrée. Later on, he turned his attention to journalizing the ensuing civil strife of the Paris Commune and the Franco-German War of 1870; his sketchbook and diary from this period contains 100s of detailed drawings. When he saw his technological imaginations turn into real-life nightmares during the First World War, his attitude toward technological development or scientific progress changed radically. In fact, the final decade of his life was characterized by a growing hatred to all things technological and newfangled. Today, framed Albert Robida art adorn the walls of many buildings.
