The following is from Amy Kleppinger, Art Cellar Exchange:

Alexandre Rachmiel (1835 -1918) Landscape Painter

Born in Alsace-Lorraine France in 1835, Alexandre Rachmiel was a fellow
student of Jean-Jacques Henner. Rachmiel began as a fabric pattern
designer while he continued to develop as a painter.

Following the start of the Franco-Prussian War, Alexandre immigrated to
America in 1870. Arriving in New York, he soon met and married Sarah
Parker Scott a widow with four daughters. The family settled in
Haverstraw-on-Hudson and soon after son was born. Jean Rachmiel was
born in May of 1871 and would follow in his father's artistic footsteps.

Alexandre schooled his son at a young age in drawing and painting and
sent Jean to New York to study at the Art Students League at the age of
16. Throughout these years, Alexandre continued to paint heroic and
vibrant landscapes. In 1895, Alexandre joined his son in Paris, where
Jean was studying with Bonnat at the L'Ecole des Beaux-Arts. They
shared a studio together there from 1895- 1902.

Alexandre returned to the United States and settled in California from 1901-1902 and again in 1906. From 1903-1905, both father and son worked in Washington D.C. decorating the Corcoran Art Gallery with many large murals.

Well known for his landscape paintings, a close friend once noted that
"Alexandre says he has quiet conversations with the trees, and I believe
him as he has such a way of giving a tree a distinct personality."
Alexandre Rachmiel painted in Philadelphia, Pasadena, Laguna, and Santa
Barbara before he died at Vincennes, near Paris, in 1918.
