Bullfight features more than 140 oil paintings and thirty-five drawings by Fernando Botero, providing a gorgeous look at the artist's iconic subject, the tauromaquia, or bullfight. In his youth, Botero developed a passion and curiosity for bullfighting that has remained with him throughout his illustrious, six-decade career. The artist was profoundly influenced by the spectacle of the bullring-the vivid colors, the dynamic movement, the beauty and violence, bravery and fear, the fine line between life and death.

Autorenporträt
Fernando Botero (b. 1932) is the most famous living artist of our time, his voluminous figures instantly distinguishable in the thousands of locations in which they reside around the world. The Colombian artist studied at the Academia de San Fernando in Madrid before traveling to Paris and Florence to expand upon his understanding of fine art. In the last three decades, he has achieved international recognition for his many paintings, drawings, and sculptures, with hundreds of exhibitions around the world. His most recent book, Circus, was published by Glitterati in 2013. Botero continues to be an active member of the art community, living and working primarily in Paris, Monaco, Colombia, and Pietrasanta, Italy, near the quarry where his sculptures are constructed. His work is in the public collections of The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Smithsonian Institution, among others.
