“Fernando Botero: Una celebración” es el nombre de la muestra con la que el artista plástico de origen colombiano celebra su cumpleaños número ochenta en México. La exhibición, montada en el Palacio de Bellas Artes, significa la retrospectiva más ambiciosa dedicada a un artista vivo jamás programada en el recinto capitalino.

La muestra, compuesta por 177 piezas, entre pintura, dibujo y escultura, contiene obras en su mayoría pertenecientes a la colección personal del artista y abarca todo su recorrido por el mundo de la plástica: los primeros pasos, el desarrollo estilístico, los cuadros con base en la Colombia de su infancia, las obras dedicadas al tema de la religión, así como diversos dibujos y obra realizada con técnica mixta.

La retrospectiva del colombiano permanecerá en la ciudad de México hasta el 17 de junio y el programa de celebraciones incluye diversas actividades, como son: visitas guiadas, talleres de escultura y pintura, y narraciones biográficas sobre Botero enfocadas hacia el público infantil.

¿Botero?

•Hace 61 años, Fernando Botero (Medellín, 1932) se presentó por primera vez en la galería fundada por Leo Matiz en Bogotá, Colombia.

•Hacia 1953 emprendió un viaje por Italia y Francia donde adquirió habilidades técnicas del Renacimiento italiano.

•El inicio de su carrera estuvo lleno de obstáculos y malas críticas, sus cuadros no se vendían.

•Botero se mudó a la Ciudad de México en 1956 para estudiar a los muralistas Rivera y Orozco. Se dice, fue ahí donde descubrió su verdadero estilo al jugar por vez primera con el volumen de los cuerpos.

•Hacia 1960 Botero se instala en Nueva York, donde refina su arte, alcanza madurez en su obra y obtiene reconocimiento mundial.

•En 2008 la Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León (México) le concede Doctorado Honoris Causa.

•Botero tiene un gusto especial por exponer en la vía pública. Su obra ha podido disfrutarse en el Paseo de Recoletos (Madrid, España), los Campos Elíseos (París, Francia), la Plaza de la Señoría (Florencia, Italia), en la explanada del Palacio de Bellas Artes (Ciudad de México), e, incluso, a los pies de las pirámides de Egipto.

•En la Explanada del Palacio de Bellas Artes se colocaron cinco esculturas de bronce como señal de bienvenida a los asistentes. Se trata de las obras: “Caballo”, “Mujer parada”, “Mujer reclinada”, “Mujer sentada” y “Rapto de Europa”.
