Description
The home was located on the west side of Cahuenga Blvd. at Hollywood Blvd. on property he obtained from Mrs. Wilcox Beveridge after he moved to Los Angeles in 1889. The artist, who was born in Lyons, France, desired 65-foot-deep lots on which to develope an extensive flower garden. At one time he had 4,000 roses, which he masterfully depicted in his paintings. Many tourists visited his garden and art gallery over the years. The home was demolished in 1927.
