Artistic period 1851 to 1900




1856 (New Haven)


1933 (New Haven)


John Haberle (* 1856 in New Haven, Connecticut; † February 3, 1933) was an American painter of the 19th century who specialized mainly in trompe-l'oeil. He was known for his depictions of paper money. Although he had been warned about this by the Secret Service of the USA, he continued to paint deceptively real banknotes in his paintings.

Haberle's style is known for neither having structured as precisely as William Michael Harnett nor having worked as colourfully as John Frederick Peto, who is considered the main representative of this style in the late 19th century. Haberle, who has also worked as an engraver, is known for his technically very well executed compositions and for the humorous elements in his pictures.
