Informative

by annetteb on Nov 16, 2009

I bought this book to give me some background on Botero as an artist and to learn about his biography. As a docent at a museum where we have his works on display, it was invaluable in getting information about where he was coming from artistically as well as personally. Some of the works in the book were earlier pieces, but all in all this was a tremendous resource.
