Signed and dated 'J.A. Velasquez Honduras CA 56' lower right

José Antonio Velasquez was part of the boom of painters in Honduras during the 60’s and 70’s becoming, perhaps, one of the worldwide known Honduran painters.

His style included painting landscapes of a small village named San Antonio de Oriente that made him famous. He is part of the “naif” movement. Because of his tender view of Honduran life, he created motifs such as The Typical Village Priest and The Dog Wandering Down the Cobblestone Roads.

He was a pioneer in Honduran rural life paintings.
