Born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1935 of a French father and a Bolivian mother, Graciela Rodo Boulanger has been painting children for the last sixty years. Her paintings, full of rotund lyrical figures that exude the kind of happiness that only a child can feel, are iconic. Themes of domestic life, dance, and music pervade her work as Boulanger incorporates her own world into her paintings, blurring the line between art and life. As a trained pianist, Boulanger traveled the world early in her career. In the 1960’s she trained at the Atelier of renowned printmaker and engraver, Johnny Friedlaender, which influenced her work tremendously. The emphasis she places on the two-dimensional surface of the picture plane, as seen in her rejection to model her figures, as well as her use of found materials secure her place in the Modernist tradition. Boulanger’s works can be found at La Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, the Modern Art Center in Zurich, and at the Museum of Modern Art of Latin America in Washington, DC.
