Old California Cantina Painting c. 1925 P1179 SOLD

California never completely forgets its past as Mexico, and the dream of its Spanish past informs its iconography to the present day. How much of this is fantasy hardly matters to a state whose mastery of make-believe is renowned around the world. So here we are in an Old California cantina with a pair of beautiful flamenco dancers entrancing their handsome caballeros as the sun begins to set and a¬†night of fiesta begins. It’s not history, fellas, it’s romance. Beautifully painted in a perfect frame, a spell-binder in every way. Artist unknown.
