Graciela Rodo Boulanger, born 1935. Native of La Paz, Bolivia, Rodo Boulanger creates joyful scenes depicting the pleasure of childhood in a childlike way. Simplistic, graceful lines and lyrical colors, make her compositions as rhythmic, rigorous and spontaneous as the round-faced children she paints. Rodo Boulanger studied and pursued art in Paris, where she still resides. She published her first edition of engravings and exhibited in the United States in 1966.
Her work has been in 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 appeared in the public hall of the U.N. General Assembly. Rodo Boulanger is 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.
