Fernando Botero's abstract and representational style. The bold woman
rides on the back of a large bull, plump and confident, with her right
arm behind her turned head. The artists dramatic emphasis on shape and
volume creates a great attraction and tangibility to form. The
sculpture was molded by using the lost-wax casting method and finished
with brown patina tarnish allowing intricate work to come through the
precious metal. This is an exquisite three-dimensional work of art for
anyone who is F.Botero enthusiast.
Fernando Botero Angulo (born April 19, 1932) is a Colombian figurative
artist, self-titled "the most Colombian of Colombian artists" early
on. He came to national prominence when he won the first prize at the
Salón de Artistas Colombianos in 1958. Working most of the year in
Paris, in the last three decades he has achieved international
recognition for his paintings, drawings and sculpture, with
exhibitions across the world. His art is collected by major museums,
corporations and private collectors.
