Lucian Boulier was born Verdun, France in 1882. He was a student of Jean Léon Gérôme.
He exhibited at the Salon d’Automne from 1919 to 1932, the Société Nationale des Beaux Arts, and the Salon des Artistes Indépendants from 1926 to 1932.
Boulier produced many paintings of nudes and young fashionable women. His style was that of the pointillists, he abstracted his subjects so the detail would reveal itself when the observer moved back from the canvas.
Boulier’s themes were very popular between the wars; his models were playful and mischievous. His works could be considered part of a new genre “Boudoir Art.”
