AUGUSTE BOULARD père (French / 1825-1897)

Auguste Boulard père was born in Paris in 1825. Boulard studied under Jules Dupré and Léon Cogniet. He made his debut in the Paris Salon in 1847. Although not usually listed among the Barbizon painters, Auguste Boulard was very much involved in the post-Romantic aesthetic, where the lives and landscape of the agricultural poor were the main concerns of the artist. He lived from 1850 until his death in 1897 in L'Isle Adam, where he was a member of the Groupe de L'Isle Adam, which along with Boulard included Jules Dupré, Charles Daubigny, Honoré Daumier, Théodore Rousseau, and Camille Corot. The influence of Millet is strongly felt in the art of Auguste Boulard, the elder.
