Madrid welcomes Europe’s largest ever exhibition of works by Fernando Botero. The show covers the entire career of the Colombian artist, and also debuts some of his latest work.
These 67 large-format works trace the development of Botero’s art. In their monumental volumes and vibrant colours, the painter creates his own unique style and language, which are instantly recognisable both to critics and to the general public.The exhibition is divided into seven sections corresponding to his most characteristic themes: Latin America, Versions, Still Life, Religion, Bullfights, Circus, and Watercolours on Canvas. This last section gathers his most recent work, shown here for the first time: a series of paintings begun in September 2019, in which he experiments with watercolours, applied to large canvases rather than paper.
