Gabriel Loppé was a French painter, photographer and mountaineer, making over forty ascents of Mont Blanc during his career. At the age of twenty-one, Loppé climbed a small mountain in the Languedoc, found a group of painters sketching on the summit en plein-air, and found his passion. Largely self-taught, Loppé was among the first painters to capture glaciers at such high altitudes, and found success through exhibitions in London and Paris. His photograph of lightning striking the Eiffel Tower (1902) is in the collection of the Musée d’Orsay.
