Born October 18, 1862 in Lyon, died December 11, 1896 in Lyon.
Son of Adolphe Appian, Louis Appian died very young, two years before his father. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, then at the Beaux-Arts de Paris and with Alexandre Cabanel.
He exhibited for the first time at the Salon de Lyon in 1886, then at the Salon de Paris in 1888. At first, he painted portraits, nudes and still lifes, but gradually began to paint landscapes, particularly after a stay in Algeria to treat his tuberculosis. His talent earned him a scholarship to the Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1885. From 1886, he exhibited his work in Lyon as a member of the Société des artistes lyonnais. In 1888, he began exhibiting in Paris at the Salon de la Société des artistes français. His success was immediate and enduring.
