Heffel Auction House Biography and Notes

Fernando Botero is from MedellĂ­n in Columbia, an isolated but beautiful Spanish town where he had little exposure to art. However his travels, beginning with his training at the Academy in Florence and his great interest in the painting of central Italy, expanded his horizons. He now lives most of the time in New York and Paris. Botero encountered such powerful movements as Abstract Expressionism, but resisted such modernist influences. Rather, he looked back to the work of figurative painters of the Trecento and Quattrocento, while remaining connected to South America in his memories, fantasies and images, expressed in his unique style.
