Florencio Molina Campos(Argentine, 1891-1959)
An illustrator and artist known for his artistic humor, Molina Campos depicted traditional scenes of the Argentine pampas. Long-time friend Walt Disney admired Molina Campos’ work to the point that Disney engaged him for consulting work on such films as Bambi. His love and knowledge of Argentina’s Patagonian region can be seen in the flora and fauna depicted in the film. Molina Campos first exhibited at the Argentina Rural Society in 1926, and his last showing was as a posthumous tribute in 1959.
