Drawn exclusively from Botero's private collection, the one hundred works featured in this book, including previously unpublished paintings and drawings, represent the full scope of his oeuvre from a uniquely personal perspective. Many of these - portraits of friends and family members and remembered scenes - have remained in the artist's possession since their creation, while others he has bought back over the years as markers of significant developments in his career. Three essays examine the artist's creative life, from the aesthetic environment in which Botero developed his unique style to his catalyzing influence on the Colombian art world of the 1960s and '70s."--BOOK JACKET.
