The Arnolfini BY FERNANDO BOTERO


"An artist is attracted to certain kinds of form without knowing why. You adopt a position intuitively; only later do you attempt to rationalize or
even justify it." .------F. BOTERO


Fernando Botero is an abstract artist in the most fundamental sense of the word, choosing what colors, shapes, and proportions to use based on intuitive aesthetic thinking.

The "fat people" are often thought by critics to satirize the subjects and situations that Botero chooses to paint.

I read in wikipedia that Vladimir Putin's president of Russia, and Arnolfini (the guy in the pix) have the same physical resemblance to each other.

Just look at them closely.

The physical resemblance, is rather interesting indeed. I was fooling around with photoshoping his face into this dA submission, resizing, flipping the image horizontally, then reducing the number of colours to that of the dA. submission.

I don't want to be posting insulting photos of the president. I'll send it to you in a PM instead.

Can someone please explain to me the choice of colours used for this piece? I'm under the impression that some amount of potential detail, is lost this way.
