Catalogue Note

"There is great power in the contained emotion of Botero's figures. There is also a tremendous humor and playfulness in his work. We are never supposed to be too serious before a Botero, be it a painting, a sculpture, or a drawing. Yet this is an art of great humanity. On the one hand, his sculpture is silent and laconic, while on the other it expresses an exuberant sensuality and earthiness, a sheer reveling in existence." 

Edward Sullivan, Botero Sculpture, New York 1986, pp. 18-20
