Fernando Botero

May 4 - July 18, 2010

One of the most intriguing artists of the 21st century, Fernando Botero met Turkish art lovers for the first time at the Pera Museum, where a selection of 64 paintings was exhibited. Botero has brought a new interpretation of the aesthetics of our time, and the exhibition depicted this interpretation in six sections - the circus, the bullfight, Latin American people, Latin American life, still lifes and versions from past masters of history of art. The works of the Colombian artist contain many references to his own culture and life, and in a unique style they question the concept of beauty in our century.

This exhibition was achieved with the support of the Honorary Consulate of Colombia, The Spanish Embassy and Instituto Cervantes, Istanbul.
