Botero Museum, Bogotá. In the year of 2000 the Colombian artist Fernando Botero donated 208 art pieces, 123 of his own making and 85 of other international artists, to the Bank of the Republic. With this collection, the Botero Museum was founded in the neighborhood of La Candelaria, the historic center of Bogotá, in a colonial mansion that was acquaired by the Bank of the Republic and made suitable to house the art collection by Fernando Botero himself.
His signature style, also known as Boterismo, depicts people and figures in large, exaggerated volume, rather similar to the shape of the present human species!
The museum is open to the public free of charge.
