Benito Rebolledo Correa was interested in art from a young age; he studied painting, sculpture and drawing at the night school during his teenage years. At fifteen he moved to Santiago where he lived with a group of artists. Correa devoted his life to his two passions: boxing and painting. Breaking away from the artistic tradition before him, his large canvas hints towards the concerns of the dawning impressionist movement. Just as he uses a sense of boldness and urgency in the boxing ring; so too on this large canvas we see him using urgent yet dexterous brushstrokes and a boldness in his use of colour.
