He exhibited them with the Thirteen Watercolorists group at local art galleries and in annual museum shows. During World War 11, he was stationed in the South Pacific and produced many watercolors, some of which appeared in Life magazine. After the war, he continued to paint representational transparent watercolor paintings of cityscape scenes and landscape subjects in the Sonoma County area.

Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
Louis Macouillard was born in San Francisco, CA on Sept. 8, 1913 of French descent. Macoulllard graduated from Polytechnic High School and the CCAC (1934) followed by further study at the ASL in NYC. Returning to his native city, he became art director for the Velvetone Poster Company and maintained a studio on Hotaling Place. He began painting (mostly watercolors) scenes of San Francisco during the 1930s. During WWII he served in the Navy in the South Pacific and produced many artworks of that area which were featured in a six-page spread and cover of the October 1943 issue of Life magazine. As well as fine art, his work includes book illustrations and the designs of two U.S. postage stamps (Daniel Boone & San Antonio). He was also a skilled yachtsman and hand-crafted one of the first trimarans to sail on San Francisco Bay. His later years were divided between his homes in San Francisco and Sonoma County. Macouillard died in his native city on Nov. 26, 1987.
