“Gold Rush Days” is a passionate recreation of the iconic western rodeo poster. Using his skills as an intaglio print maker and painter, Bob Coronato 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, Coronato’s sense of western authenticity is impeccable.
“Gold Rush Days” is made available as both a giclée on paper and giclée 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.
