Donacion Botero Museum, Bogotá: 7 reviews and 13 photos
Another highlight in the Bogota museum panorama is the Donacion Botero, a large collection of aintings and sculptures donated to the city by the Medellin-born artist Fernando Botero, the man who paints/sculpts fat people, fat animals, fat fruits... and so on. His worls, especially those portraying women, are very sensual.
The collection includes 123 Botero paintings, sculptures, and drawings - as well as many paintings and scultpures by artists that Botero liked a lot - mainly impressionists (see the wonderful Pissarro painting in the first exhibition room) and surrealists (
including some fine Miro, Dali and Ernst works) that were part of the artist's private collection.
The museum is open from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. every day except on Sunday, when it closes at 5 p.m. It's closed all day on Tuesday and entrance is free. Photos are allowed, provided you don't use a flash.
