Property from the Estate of Mary Walsh San Antonio, TX


Style of Porfirio Salinas (TX, 1910-1973), Blue Bonnets, Oil on Canvas, c. 1950's, unsigned, depicting a field with blue bonnets, cactus, and trees with hills in the background, in a giltwood frame. Frame size: 24 1/2 in. x 36 1/2 in.

Porfirio Salinas was a Mexican-American painter known for his impressionistic landscapes. Some of his most admired works depict blooms of wildflowers in the Texas scrubland. Born on November 6, 1910 in Bastrop, TX to Mexican immigrant farmers, he was first exposed to art after leaving school to work at a local art supply store. After meeting the painter Robert William Wood at the store, Salinas worked as Wood's studio assistant. Notably, Salinas was one of President Lyndon B. Johnson's favorite artists, and his work adorned the White House foyer through his term. He was the subject of a 1962 solo exhibition at the Witte Museum in San Antonio. Today Salinas' work can be found in a number of public collections, including the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum in Canyon, Texas; the Texas State Capitol; the Texas Governor's Mansion; the Lyndon Baines Johnson Ranch; the Witte Museum in San Antonio; Texas A & M University and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, among others.
