About

Important bronze sculpture 'Reclining Woman', 1973 by the renowned post-modern Spanish-Puerto Rican artist, Ángel Botello. Bronze, 14.5 x 24.5 x 9 inches. This figurative sculpture features a serene woman with breasts reclining with her one hand under her chin and the other stretched out towards her lower back. The bronze has varying patinas of black.

Ángel Botello (June 20, 1913 - November 11, 1986) was a Spanish-Puerto Rican painter, sculptor and graphic artist. He was dubbed 'The Caribbean Gauguin' for his use of bold colors and depictions of island life. Botello is considered one of the greatest Latin American post-modern artists.

Ángel Botello never attached to any particular artistic school or movement and developed his own artistic style. Botello was a versatile and many-sided artist who worked in all artistic media at his reach: oil paintings, drawing, printmaking, bronze sculptures, wood carving, photography and mosaics.

In 1985, Ángel Botello, who was a heavy smoker, was diagnosed with lung cancer. In the last year of his life, at age 73, Botello produced the incredible amount of 22 bronze sculptures in large format.
