Description

"I believe it is very important that stylistic coherence should dominate the form of expression. In other words, in my work you will find that every item is depicted in the same style. That manner permeates the entire canvas. When you see a still life of mine, you will notice that the knives and forks, the fruit, the table, the napkin, everything is rendered in the same fashion, therefore the whole work radiates a sense of unity, harmony, and coherence. That is what communicates its essential truth." 

Fernando Botero, quoted in John Sillevis, The Baroque World of Fernando Botero, Alexandria, 2006, p. 27
