Albert Lebourg was born of a father clerk of justice. He studied from 1861 to 1865 at the high school of Evreux and then opted for architecture. He began his studies with M. Drouin, architect and professor of linear drawing in Rouen. Thanks to this Lebourg meets Delamarre, landscape painter from Rouen, who will give some advice to the beginner artist.
He also received his training from Mr. Morin, director of the municipal school of painting and drawing in Rouen, where he attended classes. The years pass and Lebourg is moving towards painting and drawing.
In 1872, a painting exhibited in Rouen was noticed by a collector. During an interview with Lebourg, the collector offered him a job as a drawing teacher in Algeria. In October of this year Lebourg embarked for Algiers, he returned to Rouen in 1873 to marry Marie Guilloux.
Back in Algeria, he uses his moments of freedom to draw and paint. But in 1877, he decided to return to France and he resigned.
Until 1895, he spends his time between the Ile-de-France, Paris, the suburbs, Rouen and Normandy. In 1888, he moved to Puteaux where he radiates to Sèvres, Saint-Cloud, Bas-Meudon, Bougival and Saint-Germain
Albert Lebourg was elected member of the National Society of Fine Arts in 1894.
