Description ——- Wonderful and Rare, signed , SALVADOR CORONA folk art box painted box with his usual joyous landscape of colorful, active people in early 19th century dress, along with exotic birds, horses, assorted animals (bulls, donkeys, deer, etc), flowers/trees and Maximillion era Mexico architecture. Notice the playful central story of this box – a pair of bulls have escaped and are being chased by a man on horseback who is trying to lasso them. Meanwhile the bulls have chased a man up a tree, as other. Villagers run for their lives. Box is solid wood with a domed lid, split wire hinges, and a divided interior. Box is painted in oil-based pigments on a cream colored ground. Because of the (partial) paper sticker inside, this work can be dated pre-1950 (when Corona emigrated from Mexico to live in Tucson, Arizona). Corona is beloved for the murals he painted on buildings and interior walls throughout Tucson. He is a listed artist, famous in Mexico and the USA, and in 2010, the University of Arizona / Arizona State Museum held a solo exhibit devoted to his work. If you do a google search the phrase. Salvador Corona: Matador to Muralist Exhibit, there is an excellent, 2010, YouTube (less than 4 minute) video about him and this exhibit. This is an original Salvador Corona work. There were many imitators of Corona’s style of painting, but since this is a signed work, there is no doubt. (18951990) was a Mexican-American bullfighter and artist who created an iconic folk-art style of figure and pastoral painting on everyday objects. The style is characterized by colorful Mexican scenes on a white background. The style was emulated and copied becoming a ubiquitous to the southwest and broader towns tourist trade in the 1960s. Salvador Corona was born on his family’s ranch Hacienda Mideras in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Coronas family moved to Mexico City in 1903 when he was 8. He attended the New English College in Mexico and then crossed into a career in bull fighting, entering the ring for the first time in 1913. In 1919 in Guadalajara he was gored and turned to painting. He was given his first painting lessons by fellow bullfighter Jose Jimenez. His traditional self-developed folk art style images depicted pastoral colorful scenes of Maximilian era Mexico. Painted on white backgrounds. His work can be divided into three categories: a vice-regal era with European and Creole noblemen mixed with Indians; stylized landscapes of Patscuaro, Acapulco or the Canal of Santa Anita; and his iconographic Mexican Virgins painted in tones of blue, purple, and gold often encrusted with mother of pearl. Corona moved to Tucson in 1950. His studio and residence was located at 1701 East Speedway Boulevard, and then 902 North 4th Avenue overlooking Catalina Park. Tuscon, AZ and in Josiah Joesler designed Broadway Village. His work was owned by U. Approximately, 10″ x 3.5″ x 2.75. Shown with a pear, for scale. Mark — signed ” Corona ” inside lid, in paint.
