David Benrimon Fine Art is pleased to present Fernando Botero:Maestro for our spring exhibition. The show features a selection of paintings, sculpture, and works on paper by the
internationally renowned artist, in honor of the Maestro’s life. Widely celebrated as Colombia’s most successful and well known artist, Botero’s oeuvre of satirical and graceful voluminous subjects spans over seventy years. The exhibition focuses on works from Botero’s career that infuse historical and contemporary art references through his iconic “Boterismo” style. With exaggerated proportions and voluptuous figures, flat and bright color, and modest sensuality, Botero reimagines historical themes, mythological subjects, and contemporary Latin American life. He playfully renders the reclining nudes, religious icons, as well as still lifes, families, and society people. Botero’s figures are both inviting and enchanting, and the overwhelming ‘roundness’ of his characters, whether sculpted in bronze, painted on canvas, or drawn on paper, have solidified him as a legend in the art historical canon.
