Fernando Botero (the art)

Fernando Botero’s voice, Colombian painter and sculptor, who thinks about the art on the occasion of the inaugurated exposition in Bilbao in 2012 because of his eighty anniversary.

In the exhibition, which was displayed at Bellas Artes Museum of Bilbao, 79 paintings of his personal collection and a big bronze horse appeared.

Defined by the painter as “maybe the most representative of my life”, the exposition included works since his first period of training to his still lifes and the bull-fighting iconography, this last that loves so much.

Read translation of the transcription:

“Well, art must be sensual, I think, in that way I said that painting must be appetizing. Yes, there are some matters more like friendly, because painting has been made about matters more like friendly. If somebody looks at art’s history in a panoramic view, somebody could see that all of the painters worked on a life and kindest or sweetest moment’s exaltation that exist in the middle of big tragedies, for example, the impressionism”.
