Bombolo, by Guillermo Divito

However, Guillermo Divito owes most of his fame to the grace and style with which he depicted the female figure. His famous "Divito girls," are tall and luscious beauties with narrow waists and generous bosoms. Guillermo Divito was killed in a car crash in 1969. A statue of a Divito girl has a statue in Buenos Aires, as part of the 'Paseo de la Historieta' ('Comics Walk'), located in the Belgrano and Balcarce street.
