Auguste Veillon obtained a diploma in reformed theology in Lausanne. He then joined François Diday's studio in Geneva, where he painted mainly seascapes and the mountains of the Bernese Oberland.

In 1858, he enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. There, he met the orientalist painter Eugène Fromentin, which produced a turning point in his work. He travels to Rome, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Egypt. He lived for two years in Venice, before settling in Geneva.
