  The only son and pupil of the landscape painter Adolphe Appian, Louis Appian was active as a genre, still life and landscape painter, as well as a portraitist and etcher. He entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Lyon in 1879, before winning a scholarship in 1885 to study in Paris, where he completed his training with Alexandre Cabanel. Although he failed to win the Prix de Rome in 1887, Appian enjoyed a measure of success as a painter, although not on a par with the reputation enjoyed by his father. His health was poor, and was already the object of concern to his parent’s as early as 1892. A brief trip to Algeria at the end of 1895 aggravated his poor health, and Appian died of tuberculosis in December 1896, at the age of only thirty-four.
