Biography from E. S. Lawrence Gallery Charleston:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born in La Paz, Bolivia, in 1935,  Rodo Boulanger creates joyful scenes that depict the pleasure of childhood in a childlike way.  Her simplistic, graceful lines and lyrical colors, make her compositions as rhythmic, rigorous and spontaneous as the round-faced children she paints.

Raised in an artistic environment, Rodo Boulanger studied both piano and art as a child. At 22, she decided she must choose one or the other and began to devote all her attention to her art.  Four years later, her pursuit of her art took her to Paris, where she still resides. In 1966, Rodo Boulanger's creative efforts began to be recognized with the publication of her first edition of engravings and her first exhibit in the United States.

Since then her work has been shown in more than 150 exhibitions on five continents. In 1979, she was designated by UNICEF as official artist for the International Year of the Child poster and two of her tapestries were presented in the public hall of the U.N. General Assembly that year.

Rodo Boulanger also has been recognized by The Museum of Modern Art of Latin America in Washington, DC; the Metropolitan Opera of New York; the World Federation of the United Nations Associations; The Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; the Museum of Modern Art, LaPaz; and the Modern Art Center, Zurich.

Rodo Boulanger's joyful scenes depict the pleasures of childhood in a childlike way. Born in La Paz, Bolivia, Graciela Rodo Boulanger was raised in an artistic environment.  She studied piano with her mother, and it was at the age of 25, after having studied music in Chile, Austria, and Argentina, that she decided to devote herself to her creative expression, which is painting.  Since her first one woman show in Vienna, 1953, she has worked in many other mediums beside oil painting: etching, lithography, water colour, pastel, sculpture and tapestry.

More than 150 exhibitions of works by the artist have been held on five continents of the globe. In 1979 she was designated by UNICEF as official artist for the International Year of The Child poster. In 1993 the world Federation of the United Nations chose one of her oil paintings to illustrate a stamp issue and accompanying limited edition print with the theme of endangered species.

Works by the artist have been acquired by many institutions including: the Museum of Modern Art of Latin America, Washington, D.C.: the Bibliotèque Nationale, Paris; the Museum of Modern Art, La Paz; and the Modern Art Center, Zurich.
