Botero’s Chubby Subjects

I’ve always thought that Fernando Botero had some sort of a fetish about heavier weight people. This week I found the real reason for the chubbiness in his art, visiting the Antioquia Museum in Botero’s hometown, Medellin, Colombia.

Aside from this, he was actually fascinated with prostitution and its interaction with daily life. Hence, some of the art pieces such as “The House of Amanda Ramírez”.
