Last night saw a host of London influencers and movers-and-shakers including Lady Gabriella Windsor, Olivia Inge, Alistair Guy, Lord Harry Dalmeny and Stanley Johnson gather together to celebrate the exclusive Private View of Fernando Botero’s latest exhibition.
Hosted at New Bond Street’s Opera Gallery London, guests enjoyed Pommery Champagne and Central Valley Sauvignon Blanc whilst viewing artwork and sculptures by Fernando Botero – Columbia’s most famous living artist. Born in Medellin, Columbia, in 1932, Botero is best known for his unique style, featuring oversized and voluptuous characters, animals and elements of the landscape.
Lady Gabriella Windsor and art enthusiast Blaise Patrick were seen admiring Botero’s artwork and sculptures, whilst Olivia Inge chatted and giggled the night away with old friend Diego Bivero-Volpe.
The evening also saw Opera Gallery London reopen its doors following a complete refurbishment, celebrating this with their latest exhibition and the gallery’s first ever solo exhibit of Fernando Botero’s work.
Through a selection of paintings, works on paper and sculptures, the exhibition highlighted some of Fernando Botero’s most favoured themes, including the Latino-American society and family, nudity and femininity, which invited viewers to discover a universe of abundance and modest sensuality
Opera Gallery London’s ‘Fernando Botero’ exhibition is now open to members of the public until 28th February. Admittance will be free of charge.
