Gustave Clarence Rodolphe Boulanger (1824-88) was a French figure painter. He was born at Paris, studied with Delaroche and Jollivet, and in 1849 took the Prix de Rome. All his paintings show a refined taste and imagination, but are cold and academic in execution. They include a "Moorish Cafe" (1848), "Cæsar at the Rubicon" (1865), the "Promenade in the Street of Tombs, Pompeii" (1869), and The Slave Market (1888). The recipient of many medals, he became a member of the Institute in 1882.
