Overview

One of today's preeminent Colombian artists, Fernando Botero (b. 1932) has for several decades been the focus of much critical attention. Best known for his voluptuous, otherworldly figures, the artists sees distortion of forms as the essence of art.

Culling from his vast and diverse art historical background, Botero often reworks familiar images by artists such as Leonardo, Cezanne, Velazquez, and Manet in his own distinctive style. One section of this book is devoted entirely to these "paraphrases", while other chapters focus on self-portraits, nudes, still lifes, figures and characters, and life in Colombia.

With an engaging text and reproductions of more than 60 works, this book provides readers with compelling insight into Botero's life, career, and significant role in contemporary art.
