Description

Lying Woman, 2009. bronze 6 1/2 x 21 3/8 x 8 1/2 in. (16.5 x 54.3 x 21.6 cm) Signed and numbered "Botero 2/6" lower edge. This work is number two from an edition of six.

PROVENANCE Private collection, North America
PREFACE COLOMBIAN
Botero is able to establish a sense of monumentality. The sinuous lines, the play of volumes, light and shade, a play of reflections, make his sculptures seem almost alive, with a feeling of perpetuum mobile. The combination of never-ending movement and eternal femininity imbue his sculptures with a dynamic plasticity.(J. Sillevis, The Baroque World of Fernando Botero, New Haven, 2006, p. 246)
