Mexican American painter Porfirio Salinas spent most of his life in San Antonio. His paintings predominantly feature landscapes of the Texas Hill Country. The New York Times described Salinas as President Lyndon B. Johnson’s “favorite painter.” Johnson collected many of Salinas’s works, appreciating their fidelity to the surroundings in which he was raised. In the spirit of Impressionism, this painting expresses an interest in light while also acknowledging the flatness and texture of the canvas surface on which the artist painted.
