Catalogue Note

Fortunately, my subjects have been very limited. In the history of sculpture, eighty percent of the subject matter has been a woman, either reclining standing or seated. It is a great tribute paid to the most beautiful form of nature. The interesting thing is that in returning to the same subject, you always say something different. This is one of the charms, one of the limitations and one of the difficulties that I describe in being a sculptor. You have to truly be original each time.

Fernando Botero, Botero in Washington, Washington, D.C., 1996, n.p.
