Louis Gaidan studied under Charles François Jalabert and Paulin André Bertrand. He painted mainly the shores and inlets of the Mediterranean coast. He adopted the technique of Cézanne, with whom he became friends.
From 1887 to 1903 he exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français, of which he became a member in 1889, and at the Salon de Nîmes, the Salon de Toulon, the Salon d'Hyères and the Salon de Monaco.
