Born in Bordeaux, Eugène Accard moved to Paris to study with the eminent French Academic painter Abel de Pujol (1785-1861) and at École des Beaux-arts with Léon Cogniet (1794-1880). Accard went on to achieve critical and commercial success with his historical subject pictures and portraits of Parisienne society beauties, being particularly famous for his rendering of period costume. Eugène Accard exhibited at the Salon in Paris from 1846 until the year before his death in 1887.
