Oil painting by Juan Tinoco (1905-1988) for Mason Manufacturing Company to ornament their Monterey furniture line. Bandido shooting from atop a horse. Cartoonish and whimsical. Signed, oil on board. Circa 1930. In the late 1920s, Mason Manufacturers of Los Angeles had the idea of creating a line of furniture fashioned after the ranch decor in the popular cowboy movie entitled "In Old Arizona.” It was also during this time the department store, Barker Brothers, was seeking a line of furniture to accommodate the onslaught of Spanish Revival homes rapidly being built across Los Angeles. Mason Manufacturers came up with the idea of a furniture line for Barker Brother combining design ideas from Spanish, Mexican, cowboy, and Native American influences. They called the line “Monterey” which was to become a successful venture furnishing houses throughout the United States during the 1920s to the 1940s.
