The late Spanish-Puerto Rican master, Ángel Botello is one of the greatest Latin American post-modern artists .The artist critics called him "The Caribbean Gauguin" for his use of bold colors and depictions of island life. Botello's recognition and demand for his artwork continues to grow today, fetching unprecedented auction prices. Ángel Botello never attached to any particular artistic school or movement and was a protean artist: he developed his own artistic style. Botello was a versatile and many-sided artist who worked in all artistic media at his reach. His paintings and sculptures reside in important collections such as L. Rockefeller, D. Selznick, and H. Morgenthau.
