Florencio Molina Campos left immortalized small scenes of the gaucha life that are much more than artistic pieces
Elvira is alone at her house taking mate. Suddenly, the phone rings. It was 1941, and calls are quite uncommon at that time, especially long-distance ones. Her husband is on the road and gets nervous right away; he's worried something happened to him. He hurries to attend and meets a voice that, in a Spaniard with an Anglo-Saxon accent, announces that he will soon receive an unexpected visit: Walt Disney is traveling to meet her husband. Elvira's husband is Florencio Molina Campos . The imprint Molina Campos gave to her works made them simply unique. Anyone who sees them, as little as they know about the subject, instantly recognizes them. His costumbrista portraits of life in our pampas are stories made with strokes: they speak, transmit, tell stories. They are both funny and accurate; real day-to-day cartoons in the fields. By the beginning of the 1940s, Molina Campos already had an international reputation. Therefore, it is not surprising that Walt Disney himself generated an interest in the illustrator , whom he later summoned to collaborate with him as an advisor for a cartoon series with gauchesca aesthetics . He was undoubtedly the right man for the task. There are people who leave a mark, a legacy, a story. Florencio Molina Campos left immortalized small scenes of gaucha life that are much more than artistic pieces. His talent also served to give testimony to a place, an era and a lifestyle that has so much to do with what makes us Argentines.
