Great work from this artist ( signed in the bottom right corner), who made this painting with oil on canvas, as good as original, a remake of a famous full figured or some call it "FAT MONA LISA", by Columbian artist Fernando Botero...
Painting is 48" x 39" including frame...
Here are some observations from the web about Boteros life n work...
This is a rendition of Leonardo da Vinci‘s Mona Lisa.
This, in fact, is Mona Lisa by Fernando Botero (b. 1932) painted in 1977. This Colombian artist is famous for his “fat figures” – a style that he developed as he began experimenting with size and proportions in the 1950s. Botero began his career by copying famous paintings (and selling them to support himself) housed at the Prado Museum, and subsequently went on to study art in Paris n Florence...

The fact is that he is an abstract artist, not a figurative artist. Interesting? His style is unique, recognizable from a mile away and has its roots in satire. Take for example the painting titled Presidential Family (1967). The inflated figures are possibly a depiction of the figures’ inflated egos and sense of self-importance. Botero moved from painting masterpieces to depicting Colombian life in general, ranging from the drug lords and pudgy priests, from the mafia to even nudes.
In painting Mona Lisa, Botero has created an image that is so very far removed from the delicate and enigmatic Mona Lisa housed at The Louvre, that this image almost feels like it is a parody.
