Descripción

“The greatest gift that a Colombian has given to his country” This is what a newspaper said at the time Botero donated a magnificent art collection to the Banco de la República (Bank of the Republic) which is composed with his own artwork and his private collection of renowned artists. Fernando Botero is the Colombian artist that has enchanted the world with his famous chubby characters and elements of political criticism and a refined sense of humor. Botero is a figurative artist and sculptor from Medellín, Colombia. He is known for his unique style, also called by some as Boterismo. He’s considered as one of the most recognized living artists in Latin America, therefor he is the most acclaimed Colombian artist. He exposed his pieces in 1948 for the first time and became a national eminence in 1958 when he won an award at the Salón de Artistas Colombianos (Hall Colombian Artists). From 1966 to 1975, he divided his time among Europe, New York and Colombia. In 1995 a guerrilla group blew up a sculpture of a dove, The Bird, which he had donated to the city. The explosion occurred during a downtown street festival and the guerrilla called him a symbol of oppression. Botero casted a new dove for the plaza but insisted the remnants of the original remain so that the sculptures could represent peace and violence. In 2000 he donated an art collection to the Banco de la República (Bank of the Republic), which became the Botero Museum. This collection is composed by 208 art pieces, 123 are of his own work and the remaining 85 are international artists from his private collection, including 14 impressionist paintings (including oils by Monet, Renoir, Degas, and Pissarro), four Picassos, and works by Dali, Miro, Chagall, Ernst, de Kooning, Klimt, Rauschenberg, Giacometti, and Calder. On this tour, you will be picked up at your hotel at 10:00 in the morning and taken to the museum where you’ll have a private guided visit of the museum. Get the chance to see one of the most wonderful gifts the country has been given. Enjoy the artwork of not only our most prestigious and famous artist, but also the artwork of some of the most influential and significant artists in history. After the tour is over, you will have some time to go to the souvenir shop where you can find some gifts for your loved ones back home.
