Renowned artists Carlos Cruz-Diez and Jesús Rafael Soto will feature in Morton Subastas' sale.

This 1958 work is considered a piece from Botero's youth, a fine example of the first steps the artist took into creating his recognisable voluptuous figures.

Morton Subastas will also presents a series of beautiful self-portraits by artists José Luis Cuevas, Miguel Covarrubias, Alfredo Castaneda, Francisco Toledo and Edouard Duval-Carrie.
