Drawing inspiration from a diverse array of influences, from Renaissance masters such as Giotto and Paolo Uccello to the 20th-century Abstract Expressionist movement, Fernando Botero’s signature style is characterized by the use of rotund figures and inflated forms. His 1961 work Mona Lisa, Age 12 exemplifies his use of the dynamic brushwork typical of Abstract Expressionism, although used to depict the figure rather than for pure abstraction.
