Latin American Art History Class: The Baroque World of Fernando Botero
Latin American Art History Class: The Baroque World of Fernando Botero As part of the Bowers Museums latest collection, The Baroque World of Fernando Botero, art historian Jacquelyn Powell will provide an in-depth look into the Columbian artists creative mind. His style, though immediately recognizable, covers a wide breadth of subjectsfrom chubby, cherub-faced couples dancing and even chubbier ladies lounging beachside (his Mona Lisa is damn-near pinchable), to highly violent images of tortured prisoners or bloody depictions of mobsters slaying/being slain. Boteros work, which includes paintings, drawings and sculptures, will be discussed in detail, along with his cultural identification and his artistic commentary on societal issues.
