Born into a family of merchants, Gustave Loiseau initially worked as a decorator. In 1887, he received a small inheritance which enabled him to concentrate entirely on painting. He was nearly a self-taught artist.
After the influence of the Pont-Aven School, he then turned to Impressionism.
Like the Impressionists, he painted many landscapes of Ile-de-France, but also travelled a lot and spent his summers on the coast of Brittany and Normandy.
