    William Didier-Pouget began his formal art training at the École des Beaux-Arts in his native town Toulouse, France. He later studied at the Academy of Paris under French landscape painter Baudit and made his debut at the Paris Salon in 1866. Didier-Pouget focused on the countryside of southern France and infused his landscapes with light and color. During his career, his favorite subjects were beautiful fields of heather in the fog, forests filled with trees, plateaus in the Creuse Valley, and the Dordogne River. Didier-Pouget exhibited at various venues and upon winning the gold medal at the Universal Exposition 1913, he was selected as a member of the Jury as well as a permanent senior member of the Société des Artistes Francais. His paintings are housed in the Petit Palace, Paris; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and public collections in Toulouse, and Lyon, France.
