Raoul de Longpre

Paul de Longpre was born in Lyon, France where he first began drawing floral images at a very young age. By the age of 12 de Longpre was earning an income painting flowers on fans for a Parisian firm. De Longpre was a well known and well exhibited artist in Paris when he moved to New York in 1890. Following a hugely successful exhibition in New York, de Longpre moved to Los Angeles in 1898 as a relatively wealthy man. Paul de Longpre built an extravagant home in Los Angeles complete with tended gardens. His house became a major tourist attraction, boasting 25,000 visitors each year. Painting floral scenes almost exclusively in watercolors, de Longpre found inspiration in the 4,000 rose bushes he planted on his estate.
