This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A long-time teacher at the Art Students League in New York City, from 1934 to 1969, he was a painter of realistic genre city scenes.  He also directed the Belmaison Gallery in New York where he showed work by emerging French and American artists.

He was born in New York and studied with Frank DuMond, Richard Miller and Luis Mora at the Art Students League and with Jean Paul Laurens in Paris.  Returning to New York, he had a highly successful career depicting life around him.  Bouche's father was also a painter.

Working with Stanford White, Louis did designs for palatial homes of the Astors and Carnegies and planned the decorations for New York's Hotel Plaza.  When the Pennsylvania Railroad wanted an artist to paint murals for its new streamlined club cars a generation later, the choice fell logically on Louis Bouche.  Because he enjoyed good cigars, good brandy and told good stories about his famous friends, he was tempermentally suited to decorate a club car. 

In 1933, he received a Guggenheim Fellowship.  For many years he kept a studio on West Tenth Street and also painted murals at Radio City Music Hall, the Justice and Interior Departments in Washington D.C., and the Eisenhower Foundation building in Abilene, Kansas.

In 1970, The American Academy of Arts and Letters included his work in a memorial exhibition.
