Although a few male portraits by Boulet exist, the vast majority of his oeuvre is that of women. His attractive subjects are often seen at dressing tables, in front of mirrors or just placed within a landscape. Cyprien Eugène Boulet was born on December 21, 1877 in Toulouse, France and died in Toulon in 1927. A student of Jean-Paul Laurens, Fernand Cormon and Raphael Collin in Paris he could not have asked for a better grounding in the painting of the human form. He exhibited in Paris at the Salon des Artistes Francais from 1900. He received the gold medal at the Salon for his entry of 1914, and in 1926 was installed as a full Chevalier de Legion d’Honneur, the highest award given by the French state to its citizens. He worked in Argentina, United States, Mexico before settling down in Six-Fours-les-Plages, near Toulon in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur area of southern France. His works are held by several museums such as Buenos Aires (The Robe), Nice (Femme à l'Éventail), Paris, Petit-Palais (l'Enfance), Rouen (Portrait) and Toulouse.
Cyprien Eugene Boulet died at his home in 1927.
