Christian Louis, ° 14.5.1843. May have arrived in Belgium in 1866. Recorded in the Liège population registry as a clerk aged 30 in March 1874. He then became a printer-lithographer and photographer. "Corbassière, N." in the directories from 1877 until 1880. Employed by Gustave Straus, Joseph’s second son (see that name) at this address from 1877 (and possibly as early as September 1875) until late 1879. Unnamed studio at this address offering "Artistic photography. 12 portraits, 3 frs. 4th successful year" (La Meuse, 30.10.1877).

Opening announced in September 1877, when he referred to his studio at Maison Straus as a branch (La Meuse, 22.9.1877). Corbassière returned to France in early January 1880 in the wake of bankruptcy and a forced sale of the contents of his studio on Boulevard d'Avroy. On his return to France, Corbassière operated in Paris, Rue de Grammont, 30 (entrance Boulevard des Italiens, 15) in 1880; branch studio in Le Havre, 1881; Paris, Rue des Saints-Pères, in late 1881. On 31.12.1880, jointly with Paris-based photographer Alphonse Liébert (° Tournai, 30.11.1826; + 18.6.1913), Louis Corbassière, known as Christian, applied for a patent to import "a new photographic and graphic printing system, known as the Christian process".
