Fernando Botero. Celebration
Painter, drawer and sculptor, Fernando Botero (Medell , Colombia, 1932) is the most highly acclaimed South American artist at work today. Comprising 80 works from the last 60 years, Fernando Botero: Celebration is set to be one of the most important anthologies of his art career to date. Nearly 250,000 visitors saw a larger version of the exhibition that closed on 10 June at Mexico?s Palace of Fine Arts.
Curated by Lina Botero, with extensive cooperation from the artist himself, this theme-based show provides a broad overview of Botero?s career. Most of the works on display come from the artist?s private collection and include a host of vigorous compositions, opulent forms and exuberant colours that together make a vibrant, zestful celebration of Botero?s highly personal vision.
