A celebration of the life and work of Key West artist Mario Sanchez (1908-2005) with 55 full-color reproductions of his intagliospainted relief carvings

The art of Mario Sanchez--showing street vendors, parades, rumba bands, cigar factories, ice-cream trucks, people out for a stroll--has become symbolic of the picturesque diversity of Key West life in the early-mid 20th century. Sanchez portrayed neighborhood places and events where he grew up, exhibiting his love for Florida's easy island living. His work also depicts Tampa's Latin community, Ybor City, with the same textured, quirky quality.

His work brings to life the diversity and charm of colorful neighborhood life. The vendors hawk their wares, the trolleys move and rattle, the people gossip and haggle, the dogs bark, the bells ring, and children run with their kites.

This compelling art has become highly collectible.
