Circus: Paintings and Works on Paper by the Artist Botero

The Colombian artist, Fernando Botero's works of art have always fascinated me. Born in 1923, he is truly one of the most famous living artists of our time. His works are instantly recognizable and I am thrilled to present this book, Circus: Paintings and Works on Paper, a complete collection published for the first time. It is filled with whimsical images in vivid saturated color. Botero was inspired to create this body of work when he encountered a traveling circus in a small Mexican town along the Pacific coast. The circus is one of his favorite themes and one that has also inspired artists such as Picasso, Renoir, Chagall, Calder and others. He celebrates the human body through voluminous size and enchanting movement, and at times they seem to be light as a feather. Enjoy!
