The 73-year-old artist, drawing on his knowledge of Renaissance art, has produced a body of works that is timely yet timeless, a vision of hell on earth belonging to a noble tradition of artistic statements against war and violence that includes Goya's Disasters of War and Picasso's Guernica, the works of the Mexican muralists, and Botero's own 1990s paintings responding to drug violence in Colombia."--Jacket."
