I bought a botero painting at a goodwill auction in miami. it has bright colors and the objects in the painting are large.it is a painting of fruits and a bird in a cage. bananas,apple and some veg. it has botero signature on the bottom right.the measure are 31" by 39" it has old nails and the canvas is cloth. I would like to send picture if anyone wants to see it. thank you.
I need someone who is willing to help me with a visual analysis of one of Botero's works, please.
I bought a painting at a thrift store in fl. about 12 x18. it is unfinished as in mostly an underpainting in green shades but with exact details. extremely smooth -no brush strokes. Needs to be glazed in with colors. A small version of THE PRESIDENT (man on horse with ribbon and palms in the background)Excellent copy or original thumbnail.Canvas is nailed to stretcher not stapled. No frame. Does anyone know what process Botero goes through before his work is completed? --Or any other info. How does he get his work so smooth? Any idea of the value? Does anyone know an expert I could call? I do not want to pay an appraiser at this point. Thanks

Fernando Botero Painting
I have acquired an original oil painting of two fat dancers that is obviously one of Botero's. It is on canvas attached to a wooden frame. I don't believe it has ever been framed. It is not signed on the front, but has pencil lines out to the edges and has "Botero" printed in pencil on the back of the canvas. Did Botero ever paint oils that he did not sign on the front? This is definitely an original oil with brush strokes. I would appreciate any information I can find out about this painting. I would be glad to email photos of the front and back of the painting. Thanks, Sherry
a Botero like painting
I think I may have discovered an original oil painting by Botero. It is not signed, but appears to be an original portrait of a male, nude, seated with legs crossed and hairy patches on the strangest places on the arms and legs. A conquistador helmet sits on the chair next to him. Same facial features as I see in his paintings. Enormous proportions except for tiny hands and feet. What should I do?
