The art and lives of the five legendary painters known as the Cinco Pintores (5 painters) -- Jòzef Bakos, Fremont Ellis, Walter Mruk, Willard Nash and Will Shuster -- inspired native Santa Fean Eliseo Rodriguez, a foremost Hispano artist largely unrecognized, to first launch his own painting career at 15. "This edition gives us the first opportunity to view the paintings that are at the heart of Rodriguez's artistry, and to discover the motivations and influences that have fueled his extraordinary 70-year career" --Donna Pierce, Ph.D., Curator of Spanish Colonial Art, Denver Art Museum.
