No trip to Bogotá would be complete
without a visit to Museo Botero . . .
to view the whimsical paintings of
"Colombia's most Colombian artist,"
His giant sculptures and canvasses
show a humorous, albeit chubby view
of the world . . . especially his portraits and nudes.
His paintings are included in the great museums
of the world, including a major new exhibition at the
Winnipeg Art Museum in Canada.
My favorites are his "Mona Lisa" (that smile!) and
"Artist With Nude" (I always laugh OUT LOUD.)
He lives and works in Bogotá.
