A flower and still life painter, André Perrachon was a student of Lepage at the Ecole des Beaux Arts of Lyon. Lyon produced an important and remarkable school of flower painters in the 19th century of which Perrachon is an excellent exponent. Perrachon debuted in the Paris salon in 1850 and won honorable mentions in both 1859 and 1863, continuing afterwards to exhibit regularly in the Paris and Lyon Salons. Perrachon was also a most popular art teacher and rose painter. He produced graceful and bountiful compositions of flowers.
