El Museo Botero in Bogota, Colombia

Today, I visited one of the the most amazing museums that I've ever come across. There is something special about this museum dedicated to Fernando Botero. I have been fortunate enough to visit amoung others the Met, Louvre, Smithsonian, Vatican, Orsay and British Museums. But to me the Museo Botero is an extraordinary museum for the quality of the collection of art, the simple yet elegant presentation and the seemingly good sentiments that this combination of art and layout invoked in me. I was amazed that one artists could create so many pieces of art using various mediums such as oils, pastels, sketchings and sculptures.

Here are some of my favorite pieces.

Mariano (Argentina), Erin (Canada) and Christophe (Guadeloupe/France) joined me in visiting the museum.
