Synopsis: The critically acclaimed monograph Circus: Paintings and Works on Paper explores Fernando Botero’s depictions of the circus, one of his favorite arenas to study. His images are filled with light, color, poignancy and beauty. Similarly, Bullfight: Paintings and Works on Paper covers his favorite topic and one that like Circus is widely explored by major artists throughout history and includes the author’s curated selection of artworks and drawings. Each has a foreword by renowned art critic Curtis Bill Pepper.

Whether it’s the Ringling Brothers or Cirque du Soleil, the circus is a universal tradition, bringing people together in the name of amusement and festivity. The same is true for bullfight, a tradition celebrated through history in virtually every Spanish speaking nation in the world. In these rich assemblages luxuriously presented in an a luscious lucite slipcase with the artist’s renowned signature silkscreened on the outside of the box, the reader will find an assemblage of the artist’s work on the only two theme topics that offer enough variety and expanse to be able to be offered as the subject of an individual book and have never before been published (each book) as a complete collection on the subject. Botero’s constant exploration of volume have made his artworks the most well-known by the widest general public in the world.

Following in the tradition of great painters inspired by the circus—Renoir, Seurat, Lautrec, Picasso, Chagall, Léger, and Calder, among others— Botero explores light, color, style, and space with a poignancy that highlights—through the extravagant proportion of his figures—the exceptional beauty of the human body. These are all creations that are instantly recognizable as the work of a master.

Bullfight: Paintings and Works on Paper is Glitterati’s second collection of works by world-renowned Colombian artist Fernando Botero. Featuring more than 140 oils paintings and 35 drawings, this book is a comprehensive look at another of the artist’s most iconic subjects. In his youth, Botero developed a passion for bullfighting that has remained with him throughout his illustrious, six-decade career. The artist was profoundly influenced by the spectacle of the bullring—the vivid colors, the dynamic movement, the beauty and violence, bravery and fear. In Botero’s signature style, the figures of the bullfight appear inflated and voluptuous, a grandiose exploration of scale, space, and volume. Matadors and picadors, horses and bulls, spirited crowds and striking portraits—all are exaggerated and exalted by the hand of the artist. As Jose Manuel Caballero Bonald writes, "His task is not to reproduce reality as it appears before the naked eye but rather to reinvent or reconstruct it according to his personal experience and accumulated feelings. In this sense there is no painter more truly Colombian than Botero. And yet, the more genuinely local his art is, the more universal it becomes."

About the Author: Fernando Botero (b. 1932) is the most famous living artist of our time,whose distinctive figures are instantly recognizable. His work is internationally praised and has been spotlighted by The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Art in America, and BBC Newsnight as well as by Sotheby's in New York, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, The Museum of Modern Art, and The Guggenheim in Bilbao and New York, amongst others. At the start of his career, 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 recognition for his first prize piece at the Salón de Artistas Colombianos. The author of Circus: Paintings and Works on Paper (Glitterati Incorporated, 2013), Botero continues to be an active member of the art community and works primarily in Monte Carlo and Italy. Curtis Bill Pepper (b. 1917) is an American author and journalist. He has worked for The New York Times, Newsweek, the United Press International, and CBS. Pepper is the author of seven books, the latest of which is a biographical novel of Leonardo da Vinci. He also contributed an essay to Circus: Paintings and Works on Paper by Fernando Botero (Glitterati Incorporated, 2013). Pepper divides his time between homes in Umbria, Italy and New York City with his wife, the sculptor, Beverly Pepper. Also available: Circus: Paintings and Drawings ISBN 9780988174511
