Ernest de Saisset was born to a prominent California family who had immigrated from France during the time of the California Gold Rush. He was the eldest son of Pedro de Saisset, founder and president of the Brush Electric Light Company. At the age of sixteen he enrolled in Santa Clara University. During his final year, he studied oil painting and found his future calling. In 1886, he traveled to Paris and studied at the Acadèmie Julien. In 1895, after several years of study he returned to California, where he continued to paint until his early death in 1899.


His paintings are permanent housed in the De Saisset Museum at Santa Clara University.
