Biography   Louis Lussier


Born in Canada on Oct. 22, 1832, Louis Lussier was active in Illinois in the 1850s. Following the Civil War, he was a resident of Peoria (1865-68) and Chicago (1870-74). After that time he moved to San Francisco where he had further art study at the School of Design.

He maintained studios in Oakland (1875-77) and shared a portrait studio in San Jose with Andrew Putnam Hill (1877-80) and in San Francisco (1880-84).

He died in Oakland, CA on Dec. 27, 1884 from meningitis and is buried in Mt View Cemetery.

One of the finest portraitists who painted in California, the works of Lussier compare favorably to those by the Nahl brothers and Wm S. Jewett.  Most of his portraits are on 22"x27" canvases
