First drawn to sculpture and printmaking, Alexandre Couder eventually turned to painting.
Entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1824, he began, not without some success, in historical genre painting, then devoted himself more particularly to still life. Pupil of Gros, he liked warm, firm colors and was always concerned with form and arrangement. In his paintings, almost all of medium or rather small size, he skilfully combined flowers and fruits in order to find a happy effect, with a fine and delicate taste.
Couder participated in the Paris Salon between 1833 and 1868, obtaining a third-class medal in 1836.
He was made a Knight of the Legion of Honor in 1853.
