Does anybody get the title of this photo?



Coolest art museum, ever.


If you ever go to Bogota you must not miss the Botero Museum. This museum, which is free, features a large collection of Botero's paintings and sculptures plus dozens of other works by 20th Century artists including Picasso, Miro, Chagall, etc. Visiting this museum was a remarkable experience.


From Wikipedia:


Fernando Botero Angulo (born April 19, 1932) is a Colombian figurative artist. His works feature a figurative style, called by some "Boterismo", which gives them an unmistakable identity. Botero depicts women, men, daily life, historical events and characters, milestones of art, still-life, animals and the natural world in general, with exaggerated and disproportionate volumetry, accompanied by fine details of scathing criticism, irony, humor, and ingenuity.


Self-titled "the most Colombian of Colombian artists" early on, he came to national prominence when he won the first prize at the Salón de Artistas Colombianos in 1958. Working most of the year in Paris, in the last three decades he has achieved international recognition for his paintings, drawings and sculpture, with exhibitions across the world.[1] His art is collected by major museums, corporations and private collectors.
