In very fine, age appropriate condition.
Born in Mexico, Salvador de Regil came to America in the 1930s. As his artistic expression developed, he became known for his surreal paintings.
In 1940 de Regil completed a gouache portrait of Bob Hope on the set of Ghostbreakers. The painting was based on the film plot and is presently part of the Bob Hope Archives (#187).
Salvador de Regil was represented by the famous Julien Levy Gallery in NYC and in 1941 had a solo exhibit. When Julien Levy died in 1981 the gallery archives were donated to the Art Institute of Chicago.
