Alphonse Bigot, born April 17, 1828 in France, was a noted lithographer active in Philadelphia ca. 1854-1872. Immigrating to Philadelphia before 1854 (possibly in 1849), Bigot lived in Center City and during the 1850s was employed at the lithographic establishments of Thomas Sinclair, Alphonse Brett, and L. N. Rosenthal, as well as worked as an engraver. Bigot, known for his chromolithographs, designed the finely-executed 1854 advertisements printed by Brett for perfumer Apollos W. Harrison and between 1857 and 1860, designed a number of noted color lithographs printed by Sinclair, including "Washington's Grand Entry into New York. Nov. 25th, 1783" (1860) and a ca. 1860 advertisement for "T. Sinclair & Co." Bigot also delineated book and periodical illustrations and well as executed paintings.
