Художник Salustiano

I love the drama of this portrait by the Spanish painter Salustiano Garcia Cruz. Salustiano paints using a special pigment – up to sixty layers – from the Cochineal beetle. This pigment was used by the native peoples of Central America and was brought to Europe by the Spaniards. After gold the exquisite red derived from this insect was the second most prized commodity imported by the Spanish (who later sold it to Navajos and other North American tribes for use in their rugs and textiles)
