Porfirio Salinas (American, 1910-1973)

Fields of Bluebonnets
Signed "Porfirio Salinas" l.l.
Oil on canvas, 25 x 30 in. (63.5 x 76.2 cm), framed.
Condition: Wax lined, craquelure.

Provenance: By descent from the maternal grandparents of the current owner, whose family had roots in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, and in Oklahoma City.
Estimate $8,000-12,000

Framed dimensions: 31 1/2 x 36 1/2 in.

Fine craquelure to the sky. Under strong UV light there is some very minor overall fluorescence in the sky, suggesting that the sky may have been revarnished over the craquelure when the painting was lined. No evidence of any damage to the painting. No additional condition issues to report.
