For 3 months, the exhibition “Viacrucis: the passion of Christ”, by Fernando Botero, will be exhibited in the Galería Nacional del Museo de Los Niños (National Gallery of the Children’s Museum) in downtown San José.

Under strict safety regulations, the works arrived in Costa Rica on Sunday, July 7, and will be safeguarded until their assembly, and will be inaugurated on July 20.

The international exhibition comes from Medellín, Colombia, and is composed of 27 oil paintings and 33 drawings.

According to the Museo de Los Niños, this exhibition “sets a precedent in the artistic, educational and cultural field of the country”.

Born in Medellín, Fernando Botero’s signature style, also known as “Boterismo”, depicts people and figures in large, exaggerated volume, which can represent political criticism or humor, depending on the piece.

Today, Fernando Botero Angulo, at 87 years of age (born 19 April 1932), is considered the most recognized and quoted living artist from Latin America, and his art can be found in highly visible places around the world, such as Park Avenue in New York City and the Champs-Élysées in Paris.
