Giacomo Meyerbeer (1791-1864)

Jakob Liebmann Meyer Beer, a German opera composer, first traveled in Italy to study composition. Meyerbeer truly came into his own by creating spectacular French grand operas, such as the acclaimed "Robert le Diable" (1831), "Les Huguenots" (1836), and "L'Africaine" (1865). Meyerbeer was a shrewd judge of public taste and the most popular opera composer of the century. The artist greatly influenced other composers, particularly Wagner. An unidentified engraver created this portrait.
