Son of the landscape painter Eugène Lavieille, and nephew of the wood engraver Jacques Adrien Lavieille, he was a painter of the country : near Paris, in Brittany, near Cancale and on the riverside of the Vilaine in the south of Rennes, in Touraine, at Saint-Jean-de-Monts in Vendée, where he was invited by a friend, the painter and engraver Auguste Lepère, around Vendôme where he sojourned in the home of his daughter, Andrée Lavieille, so a painter, and of his son-in-law, the man of letters, Paul Tuffrau.

He also painted in Montmartre, where he lived during his youthful days, and, as his father, at Moret-sur-Loing, near Fontainebleau.

Parallelly to his painter's activities, Adrien Lavieille executed, during his life, for money's reasons, works of restoration and decoration : basilica Saint-Martin in Tours (where he worked with the painter Pierre Fritel), Palais de Justice of Rennes, Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte, Hôtel de Lauzun, quai d'Anjou in Paris.

In 1878, he married the painter Marie Petit, who henceforth signed Marie Adrien Lavieille.
