Gold Rush Days MASTERWORK CANVAS EDITION - gwgoldG
NOTES: Gold Rush Days is a passionate recreation of the iconic western rodeo poster.Using his skills as an intaglio print maker and painter, Bob combined drawing and silkscreen with layers of oil and acrylic glazes to get that aged effect he was seeking. Having spent years as a real cowboy in Wyoming, Coronatos sense of western authenticity is impeccable. Gold Rush Days is made available as both a gicl"e on paper and gicl"e canvas, each capturing the different moods Coronato set out to create. The paper edition feels as if it is an antique poster created 100 years ago. The canvas edition could be an original painting that at one time hung in a frontier saloon lacking only the embedded scent of decades old cigars.".
Gold Rush Days Masterwork Canvas Edition Artist Proof Canvas by Bob Coronato is signed by the artist and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

BIOGRAPHY "We are at a clash of two different times: the traditional cowboy'n' ways are being overridden by the modern, quicker technologies. This is the focus of my paintings," Coronato says. "I try to document moments in time that show the ways of a fading lifestyle that so many people have admired." The subjects of Coronato's work remind people that there is still a remote, free West. The question the artist is asked most often is, "Do they really do that?" Coronato reflects, "Yes, they do - but not for much longer. The West is alive, it s just hiding in small corners of our country, trying to desperately hang on and not be forgotten." Coronato lives half the year in remote, eastern Wyoming and half the year in southern California. Upon graduating from Otis/Parsons Art School, he moved to Wyoming to pursue a career as a cowboy artist. His work has been shown at the High Plains Museum, the Coeur D'Alene Art Auction and in 1995 won Best of Show as the Pendleton Round Up Art Show. "
