A student of the Orientalist painter Benjamin Constant and the French academic painter Jules Lefebre at the Académie Julian in Paris, Louis Abel-Truchet is hailed as a prominent figure of the teeming art world of Paris in the latter half of the 19th century. From 1891 onwards this young artist exhibited his work at various Salons, including the Salon d'Automne, the Salon des Humoristes (of which he was one of the founders), the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts (of which he was a member from 1910), and the Salon des Artistes Français.
