Vintage Signed Don Shreves Palette Knife Oil Painting Mexican Musicians Mariachi

  • $ 45000


Vintage framed palette knife oil painting of mariachi performers by Don Shreves (1918-1993). Depicting two Mexican musicians this palette knife painting was executed by Don Shreves most likely in the 1960's/70's whilst in location in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Otis Don Shreves (June 15, 1918 - August 28, 1993) was a gifted artist even as a child, attending the Denver Art academy when he was 10, being the youngest student to be admitted at the time. Unfortunately he was paralyzed from the waist down after complications from an operation while he was on military service in his mid 20s, but this did not dampen his ability as a painter or his zest for adventure. From his house in Silverlake, California he painted mainly for his own pleasure, rarely selling paintings, preferring to display them in both art exhibition, competitions and his home but also travelled extensively especially around Mexico which is most often the focus of his work. He was successful in competitions and won many awards throughout his illustrious life.
