Best Quotes by Fernando Botero (Top 3)

  1. Art is a spiritual, immaterial respite from the hardships of life.
  2. I describe in a realistic form a nonrealistic Reality.
  3. A painted landscape is always more beautiful than a real one, because there's more there. Everything is more sensual, and one takes refuge in its beauty. And man needs spiritual expression and nourishing. It's why even in the prehistoric era, people would scrawl pictures of bison on the walls of caves. Man needs music, literature, and painting-all those oases of perfection that make up art-to compensate for the rudeness and materialism of life.
