Louis Marchand des Raux was born in Touraine in 1904 and went to the south of France in 1920. He started to paint in 1934 and was completely self-taught. An eminent collector, Adolphe Schloss, encouraged him and purchased his first canvases. He was the chief landscapist at the chateau "Ile-de-France" belonging to the Baronne Ephrussi de Rothschild. His work reflects the rich colors of the flowers that surrounded him. He exhibited widely in France, London and Italy.
