This publication is comprised of more than 20 new pieces by Colombian painter, draftsman and sculptor Fernando Botero (born 1932), probably the best-known Latin American artist working today. The book, handsomely bound in linen with a tip-on reproduction of the painting "The Street," revisits the most iconic subjects of the artist’s six-decade career, including examples of Botero’s bullfighters, circus performers, imbibers, musicians, reclining couples and society women. In addition to his new works, the book also includes archival photographs of the artist as a child, at exhibitions and in his studio, as well as an interview conducted by the book’s editors. In the interview, Botero discusses his august career and turning 80: "from the point of view of my energy to work, I feel like I’m 30 ... What makes me work like this is the curiosity of what my next painting will be, what I will find."
