Lucien Adrion was born in Strasbourg, France in 1889 and died in Cologne 1953. Post-Impressionist Lucien Adrion is considered an engraver, watercolorist and painter from the French school. In 1921, Lucien Adrion had his first one-man exhibition at Galerie Cheron. Being independent by nature, Adrion would not divert from his decorative paintings of Normandy beaches or scenes of Paris (his favorite subject). He was a regular exhibitor with the Independents. In 1940, Lucien Adrion exhibited Jardines des Tuileries Salon d'Automne in Paris and in 1941; he exhibited several landscapes at the Salon des Tuileries.
