“Poulbot Boy” is an original oil painting. Curiously, she chose this one and the “Poulbot Girl”, as a matching pair. Perhaps a throwback to her youth. The Poulbot characters were created by Francisque Poulbot, a French affichiste (literally, “poster designer”), very well known in France, and his drawings began to appear seen in many different shops, studios and markets, during the 1900s, and then later on when they came into vogue. The “poulbot” represented the poor children of Paris. This and “Poulbot Girl” are now with Ram at his home in France. Beautiful! Renée was absolutely amazing at giving the likeness when painting a portrait. What was also awesome, was that no person every sat live for her. She painted all her portraits from photos. She almost always painted portraits in oils. Oils was her preferred medium. As is mine! Go Mama!
