Graciela Rodo Boulanger
Bolivia's large number of different ethnic cultures has contributed to a wide diversity in fields such as art, cuisine, literature, and music. Graciela Rodo Boulanger (1935-) trained in two careers, as a musician and as a painter. She eventually chose to devote herself fully to painting. In 1962 she moved to Paris and then spent many years abroad. Latin American influence is still an integral part of her work. Her use of light and contrasting colours are reminiscent of years spent in La Paz, memories of her native country. Boulanger's art works are easily recognized, and these cards pursue some of the same visual themes that are found in her work generally: round faced children, animals and musical instruments.
