Art Brokerage: Victor Salmones Mexican Artist and Sculptor: b.1937 -1989. Victor Salmones was born in Mexico City in 1937 and studied at the prestigious Instituto de Bellas Artes (Mexican National Institute of Fine Arts). It was there that the famous Bauhaus master, Hoffman, discovered his talent, took him under his wing, and offered him an apprenticeship. Hoffman's encouragement led to the opening of Victor's own sculpture workshop in Cuernavaca in 1966. In 1967, Salmones' fluid bronze "Adam" was awarded first prize at the Biennale Exposition of the National Museum of Modern Art. His life-size bronze "Narcissus" was honored with first place in the national art competition juried by Harry Greer of the New York's Frick Museum and Charles Nagle of the Smithsonian. Victor Salmones worked principally in bronze, using the centuries-old lost wax method of casting. Each of Salmone's sculptures was cast in a numbered series of ten. Listings wanted.
