The Juliette Borda Collection

Welcome celebrated illustrator Juliette Borda to the Renee Rhyner Image Library and the opportunity for you to use a wide selection of the artist’s insightful and quirky looks at identity, self image and the complexity of modern day relationships. “Juliette Borda’s illustrations encourage us to laugh at our imperfections,” writes Vicky A. Clark in Comic Release, an analysis of cartoon imagery in a contemporary world. “(She goes) beyond the individual to deal with the trials and tribulations involved in relating to others.”

Borda’s popular, brightly painted, gouache illustrations have appeared in Travel+Leisure, Smart Money, Martha Stewart Living, The New York Times Magazine and on the cover of The New Yorker and won awards from American Illustration and the Society of Illustrators (where she was awarded a silver medal in the prestigious club’s 2003 annual juried show). Galleries and museums that have exhibited Borda’s paintings include the Norman Rockwell Museum in Massachussetts, the Pasadena Art Center, the Ontario College of Art and Design, Spazioeventi Libreria Mondadori, in Venice, Italy, and the University of Palermo in Buenos Aires. Several of her works are also in the permanent collection of the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh.
