7 July-6 September 2007. This travelling exhibition, which has been in New York and Rome and goes next to Washington DC includes a series of paintings on the torture of Iraqis by Americans in the notorious Abu Ghraib prison. The style of the Columbian painter remains the same; large, bulging bodies, like so many advertisements for Michelin tyres, but gone are the happy faces and carefree character of the people he usually portrays. Here are savage dogs attacking half-naked, blindfolded, bound and helpless bodies behind bars.
Included in the exhibition at the Palazzo Reale are 40 works from Botero
