This present volume - the first of five volume comprising a full (paintings and sculptures) catalogue raisonne - is the fruit of several years of research undertaken throughout the world by Editions Acatos, under the direction of Carole Hobi, assisted by, in particular, Marlborough Gallery Inc. of New York, and Brusberg Gallery of Berlin.
This first publication of the series covers paintings produced from 1975 to 1990 by the - today famous on five continents - Colombian artist Fernando Botero.
As all authors of catalogues raisonnes, we are aware that our publication is probably not exhaustive to date, but it seemed important, even capital, to publish a first inventory, given the ever growing circulation of Botero imitations (copies and imitations are obviously a major phenomenon of our time).
In a fashion characteristic of all works published by Editions Acatos, this contemporary reference tool combines scientific insight with aesthetic pleasure.
