BOGOTA | Museo Botero (Botero Museum) was founded in 2000, when famed Colombian abstract artist and sculptor Fernando Botero donated 123 of his own pieces and 85 of other international artists to the Banco de la República de Colombia. The museum is housed in a colonial mansion in Bogota’s La Candelaria neighbourhood.

Even if you’ve not heard of Botero, you may very well be familiar with his works, which can be found across the world and depict figures as proportionally exaggerated and overweight. The subject of the works is varied, from humorous to satirical, political and more. Exhibits have touched upon issues such as Colombia’s drug cartels, Abu Ghraib prison, family and maternity.

Other artists whose work is featured at Museo Botero include Balthus, Georges Braque, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dali, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Sonia Delaunay, Claude Monet and Henri Matisse.

Entry to the museum is free, and captions are in Spanish and English. Audio guides are available in English, French and Spanish, and cost COP$10,000.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
