Born in Paris, Decan was an early pupil of the history painter Léon Cogniet. He first exhibited his landscapes in the Salon of 1848. He was influenced by the Barbizon school of landscape painters, particularly Daubigny. Corot is known to have stayed with Decan in late August 1874, and the two artists painted together outdoors.
