The author surveys the life and mathematical work of G. H. Halphen belonging to algebraic geometry and analysis. Special emphasis is placed on his work on elliptic functions. The bibliography also lists some modern sources. Recent articles by Procesi and Xambo-Descamps and S. L. Kleiman should be added [see C. Procesi and S. Xambo-Descamps, Enumerative algebraic geometry, Proc. Zeuthen Symp., Copenhagen/Den. 1989, Contemp. Math. 123, 199-211 (1991; Zbl 0759.14043) and S. L. Kleiman, Studies in algebraic Geometry, MAA Stud. Math. 20, 117-138, 142-143 (1980; Zbl 0444.14001)].
