This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Quebec, Canada, Philip Boilleau, known as the painter of "fair women", had a long-time career as a painter of fashionable women, their portraits, figures and heads. He began his career in Baltimore and then moved to New York where he lived on Long Island.

His wife was Emily Gilbert, a drama student, whom he had married in 1907, and she became the model for many of his best-known pictures, the first of which was Peggy Head. His portrait of a young man Youth appeared on the cover of Saturday Evening Post magazine on April 19, 1913, and it has been suggested that Boilleau had an influence on Norman Rockwell who used the same empty spaces that were peculiar to Philip’s work.

Philip Boilleau had heritage of genealogical distinction as his father Baron Gauldreee Boileau was the French Consul General in Quebec, and his mother was Susan Benton, the daughter of Senator Thomas Hart Benton, and sister to Jesse Benton, who married the ‘Pathfinder’ and Presidential candidate, John Fremont.
