Few artists are as universally recognised the world over as Fernando Botero. His idiosyncratic visual world has been exhibited for over four decades and his breathtaking bronzes have graced public squares, boulevards, skyscrapers and the avenues of large cities and small towns. From Paris to Tokyo, New York to Buenos Aires, his voluptuous and instantly recognizable characters have become ingrained in the public's memory. From the beginning of his artistic career, Botero has drawn inspiration from historical sources ranging from Roman and Greek classical sculpture to Renaissance and Baroque painting. Historically grounded, his work portrays everyday imagery; glimpses of human experience.
