French Classical painter, son of Louis Boullogne the Elder, with whom he trained along with his elder brother Bon Boullogne; he also had an elder sister, Madeleine.

He failed at the Prix de Rome in 1674 with The King Gives Peace to Europe (attributed to François Verdier), but won it in 1676 for The Crossing of the Rhine and was appointed academician on 1 August 1681; his reception piece was Augustus Closing the Temple of Janus.

He continued the classical tradition of the Family; however his palette became lighter at the end of his career, with the beginning of Rococo.

He had the best career possible, becoming adjunct professor on 1 July 1690, then professor on 30 October 1693, adjunct rector from 26 October 1715 to 24 April 1717, at this date promoted rector until 26 October 1720, president of the Academy on 10 January 1722 and First Painter of the King in 1725 until his death on 21 November 1733. The king ennobled him on November 1724.
