Nursery gardener by profession, self-taught painter and leader of the Naive painters, Bauchant was one of the artists Jeanne Bucher defended the most. In 1927, at the time of his first exhibitions, his works, principally inspired by botany and mythological scenes, would enter the collections of Serge de Diaghilev, Christian Dior, Peggy Guggenheim and Catesby Jones.
