Biography  
Graciela Boulanger


Biography from E. S. Lawrence Gallery Charleston

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.
