DESCRIPTION:  Public notes: ‘If women are often my subjects, it’s because they have been one of the main subjects in painting for centuries. What really guides me above all, when I sculpt or paint men, women, animals, or objects, is the plastic aspect of beings and things. Plasticity exists indiscriminately in a woman, a still life, or landscape.’ Fernando Botero
