Philip Boileau
(1863 Quebec - 1917 New York)

Boileau postcard #1A Canadian by birth, Philip Boileau lived in Baltimore for many years, where he painted portraits of the fashionable women of the day. In 1902, he moved to New York, and married Emily Gilbert, a drama student, in 1907. Most of his postcard paintings were published between 1905 and 1918 by Reinthal & Newman, New York. He died in 1917 at his home on Long Island, Douglas Manor, a victim of pneumonia.

Boileau's obituary in the New York Times, January 19, 1917, revealed that many of his most famous illustrations were of his wife, Emily, whom he called "Peggy." His initial success was a picture of her, known as the "Peggy Head."

You can find more information and examples of his work at The Philip Boileau Society.
