Salvador Corona (1895-1984) was a Mexican-American bullfighter and artist. He was born on his family’s ranch Hacienda Mideras in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Corona’s family moved to Mexico City in 1903 when he was 8. He attended the New English College in Mexico, and then crossed into a career in bull fighting entering the ring for the first time in 1913. In 1919 in Guadalajara, he was gored and turned to painting. He was given his first painting lessons by fellow bull fighter Jose Jimenez. He moved to Tucson in 1950 and established his studio there.
