Monday, September 24, 2007
NewsOK provides an exciting review of the Oklahoma City Museum of Art's latest exhibit, The Baroque World of Fernando Botero. The author describes several of the highlights of the show, which includes paintings, drawings and sculptures from Fernando Botero's private collection.
"Called The Baroque World of Fernando Botero, the show contains about 100 paintings, drawings and sculptures of corpulent, stylistically exaggerated people, animals, objects, interiors and landscapes by the world renowned Columbian-born artist."
"Circulated by Art Services International of Alexandria Virginia, the exhibit has a powerful effect on the viewer — monumental, mythic and heroic, yet at the same time ironic, satiric and antiheroic. Curated by John Sillevis of the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, the Botero retrospective is a must-see, not only for fans of 'magic realism,' but for those who appreciate great painting, during its run through Dec. 2."
