Lecture: Botero and Violence by David Ebony, Art in America

Best known for his bright, ebullient images of people, places and things, Fernando Botero has also produced an extensive body of works addressing darker themes, particularly the hot-button political issues of street crime, violence, war, oppression and terror. In this talk, David Ebony, Associate Managing Editor and News Editor of Art in America and the author of the recent book Botero: Abu Ghraib (Prestel 2006) examines these controversial and rarely shown works, which are a key part of Botero’s extensive oeuvre.

Type in Botero at the top of the Walker Report and click Search and you will view all postings of Botero to include the grand opening of his exhibit at the San Antonio Museum of Art, (SAMA) showing a number of his paintings.
