He studied at the École supérieure des beaux-arts de Marseille with Émile Loubon, who specialized in landscapes with animals. Later, he studied with the Orientalist painter Eugène Fromentin in Paris. He took his first trip to Egypt in 1852. The following year, he accompanied the marine painter, Jean-Baptiste Henri Durand-Brager, on his expedition to paint scenes from the Crimean War.

 In 1859, he debuted simultaneously at the Salon in Marseille and the Paris Salon. After 1893, he was a regular exhibitor at the Société des Peintres Orientalistes Français.

Over the years, his color palette brightened and his brush style became freer.
