About Boulanger

Graciela 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 color, 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 Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; the Museum of Modern Art, La Paz; and the Modern Art Center, Zurich.

In 2005, Boulanger moved back to Bolivia.  Today, she continues to paint and enjoy time with her daughters and grandchildren.
