Colombian painter and sculptor Fernando Botero, renowned for his fuller-than-full-figured subjects, died on September 15, 2023, at age 91. In this "CBS Sunday Morning" feature that aired on October 10, 1993, correspondent Anthony Mason reports on the installation of 14 monumental bronze sculptures by Botero on New York's Park Avenue, and the quizzical responses of normally jaded New Yorkers.

Boteros sculptures looked marvelous on Park Avenue. The right dinension for the big apple. The only sculpture left is the cat. Art in its right place enlightens the people.

I will always love his work, and he was so special in his style of work. He will be missed by me and so many that enjoyed his work. He was certainly right up there with the greats of art. RIP Mr. Botero.

The surface of the bronze sculptures looks almost like stone, with its variegated coloration. Very attractive detail. Being made of bronze, we can assume they are hollow. Solid marble would have been impossibly heavy and easily chipped in transit.

Those opening sounds sound just the the opening to Bum Rap, a short noir fantasy on youtube. Just as long as Botero doesn't do a nude Don...

They are all ridiculous and shouldn’t be on the road in the first place. Amazing people can just dump their so called art anywhere they want.
