Jose de Jesus Benjamin Buenaventura de los Reyes and Ferreira. Was a painter, collector and antique Mexican, born in Guadalajara. One of the most Original figures in Twentieth-Century Mexican art. Born in Guadalajara, in 1882; he died in Mexico city, Aug 5th 1977. Chuco was a Mexican painter, Sculptor and Collector.
He led a very curious life, surrounded by the antiques that he collected. In Guadalajara and later in Mexico City he produced what he called his smeared papers: sheets of india paper painted with washes of brilliantly coloured aniline dyes that he prepared himself, with the occasional addition of silver or gilt. Horses and Cockerels were his favourite subjects, but he also painted exhausted girls, bleeding christs, angels, demons and angeldemons, skulls, clowns, prostitutes, circus performers, monks, doves and flowers. His painting has a very particular charm, inspired by popular and colonial art, the aesthetic value of which he was instrumental in promoting. Though influenced by Georges Rouault and by Marc Chagall (whom he met in mexico in 1942), he was one of the most original figures in 20th-century mexican art.His favorite artist from his home town was Orozco.
