Biography Adrien Persac
French-born watercolorist Marie Adrien Persac is known for his dozens of detailed renderings in watercolor of buildings in Louisiana. Legend has it that he came to America originally to hunt buffalo, but it is known for certain that by 1851, he was in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He married to Marie Odile Daigre, lived on Bayou Manchac, and worked as a civil engineer and map-maker.
In 1856, Persac, with partner William G. Vail, opened a short-lived photography business where he also exhibited his drawings and watercolors. Persac was living in New Orleans after 1857, working again as a civil engineer and architect, and painting watercolors of the local architecture, whether ordinary buildings or elegant plantation houses.
