The market in Paris was competitive, so in the winter of 1831–32, he went to try his fortunes in New Orleans, Louisiana.[2] The Louisiana Creole people identified with French culture and selected Vaudechamp to paint portraits for them. Over the next ten years he spent winters in New Orleans, and was a leading portrait painter in the region. He died at Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1866.
