Jacques Boullaire


Born into a family from the Champagne region of France and a Norman mother, Jacques Boullaire soon got tired of advertising the cars of his brother-in-law, the industrialist Louis Renault (1877-1944), who had married his sister, Christiane Boullaire (1895-1979), on 26 September 1918.

A student of Guy Arnoux and Dimitrios Galanis, he began engraving on wood in 1926, but his first work were not produced until ten years later. He exhibited at the Salon des Tuileries from 1926, at the Salon des Indépendants from 1927 to 1945, then at the Salon d'Automne from 1928. He then became a guest and a non-member exhibitor of the Société de la gravure sur bois originale (SGBO), and organised a private exhibitions where you can find only of his special collections.

Jacques Boullaire illustrated numerous works by executing different types of engravings (woodcuts, burins, drypoints, etchings, lithographs...).

In 1959, Jacques Boullaire, a former aviation photographer, was appointed official painter of the Navy. In 1992, at the Salon de la Marine held at the National Marine Museum of Paris paid tribute to him..
