Signed lower left: Juan Pablo Salinas / y Teruel

PROVENANCE:
Private collection, Dallas.

Born in Madrid in 1871, Juan Pablo Salinas y Teruel spent most of his career in Rome, acquiring a reputation among dealers and collectors for his 18th-century costume pieces set in opulent church and domestic interiors. After studying in Madrid at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, popularized by Francisco de Goya a generation earlier, he moved to Rome in 1886 and joined his brother Augustin Salinas in the Spanish artists' colony. Salinas' rich coloration and fanciful brushwork characterize his early paintings of ancient and medieval subjects, as well as his mature genre scenes. In paintings such as The Contract, which depicts an aristocratic marriage, he features his own family members among the crowd and his personal collection of antiques as decorative props.



Condition Report*:

Very good condition; not examined under black light.  Framed Dimensions 31 X 41.5 Inches Salinas y Teruel, Juan Pablo:Juan Pablo Salinas, who was born in Madrid and died in Rome, enjoyed a successful career painting a wide variety of subjects including portraits, religious themes, allegories, nudes, genre scenes, and sumptuous interiors featuring figures in lavish costumes and accoutrements. He trained at the Escuela Especial de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado in Madrid, and subsequently at the Accademia Chigi in Rome. He was in Rome in 1886 before moving to Paris. Although he painted a number of orientalist compositions, it was Salinas' paintings of this variety, featuring courtly or ecclesiastical subjects in sumptuous settings, which made his reputation. An ambitious landscape by Salinas, View of the Roman Campagna, is in the permanent collection of the Prado Museum, Madrid.
