Title: Botero in Chicago.
Publisher: Chicago Cultural Center, Chicago
Publication Date: 1994
Small 4to. Stiff glazed pictorial wrappers. 63pp. Numerous illustrations (most color). Near fine. Sole printing of this exhibition catalogue. Contributor's copy, from the library of noted Chicago photographer Archie Lieberman (1926-2008) of "Farm Boy" fame, whose color cityscape of the Chicago River graces the front wrapper (and to which Lieberman has affixed a small printed copyright statement). Laid in is a color 16mo printed invitation for an opening ceremonies reception for Botero, on which one of the officials connected to the exhibit penned: "Archie -- Hope you can join us / Tickets are enclosed. / PLEASE DO NOT GIVE / THEM AWAY. / Thanks" -- Lieberman apparently attended with one ticket, but true to form did not give away the second ticket, for it too is laid in. Also laid in is a small 4to leaflet for the April 28, 1994 opening ceremonies for the exhibit. Botero (born 1932) is a Colombian artist whose paintings and sculptures of "fat people" are instantly recognizable and are found in institutions nationwide. Bookseller Inventory # 27517
