Also while in Paris, Bahin's portraits were exhibited at the National Museum of the Louvre in 1848 and 1850. The family immigrated to New Orleans, and about 1852 established permanent residence in Natchez, Mississippi. One of the few, French trained, antebellum painters in Natchez, Bahin earned his living painting portraits, however he also painted some landscapes.
