Louis Betts was born in Little Rock, Arkansas.  His art instruction came primarily from his father who was also a painter.  At sixteen, he did his first portrait of his violin master in exchange for lessons, and Betts focused primarily on landscape painting until he was twenty-four.  He then studied portrait painting at the Pennsylvania Academy for a year, and the first Cresson Scholarship permitted him to study for two years abroad.  Betts then remained in France, (showing 500 of 6606 characters).
