While the Colombian artist Boteroâs work is often associated with peace and contentment, this book contains the 50 canvases and several drawings he made in response to the Abu Ghraib prison scandal in Iraq in 2004 and 2005. Emotive, shocking and powerful, Botero states that they represent ‘both a broad statement about cruelty and at the same time an accusation of US policiesâ. With an essay by the Associate Managing Editor of Art in America, David Ebony.


Botero: Abu Ghraib by David Ebony

In 2003, US guards mistreated and tortured Iraqi prisoners at the Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad. This book presents a series of paintings and drawings by renowned Colombian artist Fernando Botero that constitute an acerbic and poignant statement against violence and inhumanity to man.
