This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Whether it's the Ringling Brothers or Cirque du Soleil, the circus is a universal tradition, bringing people together in the name of amusement and festivity. The same is true for bullfight, a tradition celebrated through history in virtually every Spanish speaking nation in the world. In these rich assemblages luxuriously presented in an a luscious lucite slipcase with the artist's renowned signature silscreened on the outside of the box, the reader will find an assemblage of the artist's work on the only two theme topics that offer enough variety and expanse to be able to be offered as the subject of an individual book and have never before been published (each book) as a complete collection on the subject. Botero's constant exploration of volume have made his artworks the most well-known by the widest general public in the world. Following in the tradition of great painters inspired by the circus - Renoir, Seurat, Lautrec, Picasso, Chagall, Leger, and Calder, among others - Botero explores light, color, style, and space with a poignancy that highlights - through the extravagant proportion of his figures - the exceptional beauty of the human body. These are all creations that are instantly recognizable as the work of a master.
