Biographical / Historical

Lithographer Anthony Imbert (1794 or 1795–1834) was born in France and came to the United States in 1824 or 1825. Imbert immediately opened a lithographic firm, and very quickly became the premier lithographer in New York City. He printed images by artists such as Alexander Jackson Davis, Dominico Canova, Gherlando Marsiglia, and Antonio Meucci. Under the name "Imbert's Lithography," Imbert produced lithographed views of buildings in New York City, several views of Niagara Falls and New York State, portraits of eminent men, drawing books, and cartoons and caricatures.
