Having started during the 1970s as a result of his rotund sense of volume, Colombian artist Fernando Botero's sculpture work is explored in this beautiful book. It includes an essay by French art critic Jean-Clarence Lambert and constitutes the largest sample of Botero's sculpture work, from early small and medium size formats up until his recent monumental sculptures that have turned parks, plazas and streets of the largest cities in the world into real life museums.

"In art, as long as you have ideas and think, you are bound to deform nature. Art is deformation." So says Fernando Botero--artist of voluptuous bodies and distorted landscapes, whose paintings and sculptures challenge our conceptions of size and space. Collected within this colorful edition are 62 works from Latin America's best-known living artist. Commentaries on every featured piece give fascinating insight into the world of Botero--a place of opulence, abundance, and fantasy. --Naomi GesingerAbout the Author:
Jean-Clarence Lambert has played, ever since the 1950s, a prime part in international art life as an art critic, theoretician and show organizer. He has published several books, translated to various languages, and some of the most renowned contemporary artists have illustrated his poetry work.
