About the Author: Fernando Botero (b. 1932) is the most prominent living painter of our time, his voluminous figures instantly distinguishable. The Colombian artist studied at the Academia de San Fernando in Madrid before traveling to Paris and Florence to expand upon his understanding of fine art. In 1958, he gained widespread exposure after winning first prize at the Salón de Artistas Colombianos. In the last three decades, he has achieved international recognition for his many paintings, drawings, and sculptures, with more than 50 exhibitions around the world. Botero continues to be an active member of the art community, working primarily in Paris, Monaco, and Pietrasanta, Italy, near the quarry where his sculptures are constructed.

Book Description El Viso, España, 2013. Encuadernación de tapa blanda. Condition: Nuevo. Juan Carlos Botero (Colombia 1960) nos descubre a través de esta biografía la estética de su padre Fernando Botero, explicándonos su universalidad, a la vez que nos acerca a una obra cuyo propósito es crear belleza y generar placer. Este libro descifra la carrera del escultor y pintor que ha creado un estilo propio, caracterizado por figuras voluminosas y formas llenas de voluptuosidad. Su relevancia, como lo demuestra Juan Carlos Botero, se debe a la capacidad de trabajo, al dominio de distintas técnicas, a la riqueza de personajes, a una producción enraizada en las grandes tradiciones de la pintura universal, particularmente en el Renacimiento italiano, y a que su arte nos deleita y trasciende fronteras. El libro se detiene en los temas que conforman la obra de Botero, las distintas etapas de su proceso creativo, sus convicciones estéticas y la variedad de técnicas que utiliza magistralmente (escultura, pintura y dibujo). Esta biografía está ampliamente ilustrada con una magnifica selección de obras que mejor definen el arte de Botero. Seller Inventory # ELV007MAC
