Maxime Boulard de Villeneuve was the only son of Maurice Boulard de Villeneuve (1856-1918) and Marguerite Chesnard, who died in childbirth. Maurice Boulard de Villeneuve remarried, and Maxime had a half-brother and half-sister from his father's new union. Maxime Boulard de Villeneuve married Georgette Martin.

As a young man, in his native Paris, Maxime Boulard de Villeneuve was caught up in the revolutionary artistic movements of the moment. In 1901, he moved to Montmartre, where he rented a studio with his friend Francis Picabia. He was influenced by the Fauves for a few years before asshing his style. From 1922 to 1939, he exhibited landscapes and portraits at the Paris Salon. In 1926, he presented two landscapes of Montmorency at the Salon des Indépendants.

In 1929, he made a name for himself by exhibiting at the Galerie J. Allard in Paris landscapes of Enghien, Montmorency, Deuil, Groslay, Villefranche and Nice.

His quest for a poetic atmosphere led him to the south of France where he lived most of his life.

After his death, the American gallery Wally Findlay bought a large part of his works during the sale of his studio, and organized in 1975, in Palm-Beach, Florida, a retrospective exhibition of the painter.
