A relatively new museum, the restored colonial house that is Museo Botero was established in 2000 when the world renowned artist Fernando Botero donated over 100 of his works, including 85 original pieces of art by European and North American artists. Fondly referred to as “the man who paints fat people”, most of the exhibits you’ll come across will be chubby art- children, hands, oranges and violins to name a few. The Museo Botero is the artists’ largest permanent exhibit in the world. Among the 85 pieces of art by other renowned painters are the works of Picasso, Matisse and Renoir. The premises, also has a lot of other smaller museums to browse through after the Museo Botero.
