Card Players by Fernando Botero and Suzie Q by F. Scott Hess are two artworks that are set in entirely different places, but each has its unique rich themes. In Card Players, Botero attempts to satirically criticize the political excesses and the societal rot in his Colombian society through the use of swollen figures. He deliberately chose card playing because it represents gambling, which has defined the social lifestyle of Latin America. Apparently, paintings on Card Players have been done before by earlier sculptors such as Picasso, Georgas Braque, Felice Casorati and Gino Severini to convey various themes. Botero built on such pieces of art to portray his ideas. Conversely, in Suzie Q, Hess brings forth an aspect of human folly that many would rather wish to be left undiscussed. Old men are all drawn to a young nude lady doing her gymnastics above them. The young lass seems to be aware that she is the one pulling strings for the old men’s form of entertainment. This paper will explore and analyze the artistic depiction and representation of the themes as well as discuss the points of convergence of the two artworks.
