This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born and living as a youth in Leavenworth, Kansas, John Marchand became a painter, sculptor and prolific illustrator whose work reflected 'western' influences.  Despite a brief career, he was prolific, completing illustrations for thirty-five books including Girl of the Golden West and Arizona: A Romance of The Great Southwest, written by Augustus Thomas and Cyrus Townsend Brady.

Growing up in western frontier country, Marchand had first-hand familiarity with Indian Territory.  At age 16, he and his family moved to St. Paul, Minnesota.  He studied at the Harwood Art School in Minneapolis, and had a job for the Minneapolis Journal.  At age 20, he became staff artist for the New York World, and from 1897 to 1899, he and painter Albert Levering studied at the Munich Academy in Germany.

Returning to New York City, he became an illustrator, and made trips West for material.  In 1902, he met Charles Russell in Montana and later hosted him in New York, having persuaded him to visit that city.  There, Marchand introduced Russell to major art editors, publishers, and other well-known people, and Russell shared Marchand's studio where Marchand did a portrait bust of Russell.

He married in 1904 and moved to Westport, Connecticut where he died at age forty-six. He had been a member of the Illustrators Club and Salmagundi Club of New York.
