Fernando Botero
Fernando Botero Angulo, born April 19, 1932 in Medellín, is a Colombian painter and sculptor known for his round and voluptuous figures. Having ironically nicknamed himself "the most Colombian of Colombian artists", he is one of the few painters to enjoy success and glory during his lifetime. His career really began in 1958, when he won the first prize at the Salón de Artistas Colombiens:
Salón de Artistas Colombianos. During his numerous trips to the United States and Europe, Fernando Botero developed his own style, of which his Still Life with Mandolin, dating from 1957, is the first manifestation. This style, which can be seen in his paintings or drawings as well as in his sculptures, allows him not to be associated with any movement or current, past or present. Moreover, his work is essentially inspired by pre-Columbian and popular art. The artist now lives and works in Paris, France, but also in New York in the United States and in Pietrasanta near Lucca in Tuscany.
