Painting s by Colombian artist Fernando Botero inspired by the prison abuse scandal in Abu Ghraib

by Fernando Botero

A painting from a series by Colombian artist Fernando Botero inspired by the prison abuse scandal in Abu Ghraib in Iraq is seen in this undated handout photo. The abuse of prisoners at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison so enraged Botero, it drove Latin America's best-known living artist to create what he hopes will be a 'permanent witness to a great crime'. Some of the works will be on public display for the first time at a retrospective of Botero's work opening in Rome on June 16, 2005. Photo by Reuters (Handout)
