Sunday Evening Art Gallery — Fernando Botero


Fernando Botero ( April 1932) is a Colombian figurative artist and sculptor born in Medellín, Colombia.

The Study of Vermeer


His 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.

Dead Bishops


The inflated proportions of his figures are depicted using flat, bright color and prominently outlined forms — a nod to Latin-American folk art.

Marie Antoinette


And while his works include still-life and landscapes, Botero has typically concentrated on his emblematic situational portraiture.

Rubens and his Wife


For Botero, the volume of his characters allows him to emphasize and highlight certain features, showing the sensuality of form.


The Family


He loves painting and creating sculptures, especially replicas of famous paintings or celebrities.

Battista-Sorza after Piero Della Francesca


He 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.

Sunday Evening Art Gallery — Raja Ravi Varma

Raja Ravi Varma (1848-1906) was an Indian painter and artist, considered as one of the greatest painters in the history of Indian art.

Ravi Varma is one of the few painters who managed to accomplish a beautiful union of Indian tradition with the techniques of European academic art.

His paintings can be classified into three categories – portraits, portrait-based compositions and theatrical compositions based on myths and legends. It is the third category of paintings for which Raja Ravi Varma is most renowned.

Raja Ravi Varma is known for his amazing paintings, which revolve mainly around the Puranas (ancient mythological stories) and the great Indian epics – Mahabharata and Ramayana.

 He is sometimes regarded as the first modern Indian artist due to his ability to reconcile Western aesthetics with Indian iconography.

This is one of the reasons why he is considered as one of the most, if not the most prominent Indian painters.

His paintings are full of color and life, sprung from a world most of us are not familiar with.

Hopefully sharing this beautiful art will change all of that.
