Son of an affluent family, Raymond Thibesart was born in Troyes, France on May 2, 1874. 

Soon after, the Thibesarts moved to the small town of Enghien outside of Paris. It was here Raymond first began to study art with Venezuelan Impressionist master Emile Boggio (1857-1920) at the age of eleven.  
He later began his formal art education at the Lycée Rollin in Paris. He entered the l'Ecole des Beaux-Arts in 1894, followed by the Acadèmie Julian in Paris where his teachers  Jules Lefevre (1836-1910) and Tony Robert Fleury (1837-1912)  assisted in his artistic formation. 

At the turn of the century, Thibesart spent much time in southern France and Italy painting with Boggio and Henri Martin (1860-1943).  From this time forward, Thibesart worked in the Post-Impressionist style. He often traveled to Italy, Switzerland, Belgium and Corsica to record the landscape. 

Raymond Thibesart exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français in Paris where he was a Silver Medalist in 1922; at the Salon des Indépendants; and at the Salon d'Automne.
