Friends @ Home: Docent Event | The Art of Volume: Fernando Botero

Please note: Registration for this event is required and is available here:
Fernando Botero’s unique style is instantly recognizable! His subjects exist in a universe populated by exaggerated beings seemingly larger than life, at once solid and voluptuous. It echoes Pre-Columbian, Classical Spanish, and Spanish Colonial Art. An assault on what is held to be timeless cannons of beauty and ideal proportions. Botero said: “My painting has two main sources. On one hand they are my views on aesthetics and on the other the Latin American world where I grew up. I also think sensuality plays a great role.”
