Laid in are newspaper clippings regarding Fulton's illustrious career as the first and only American ever promoted in Spain to bullfighing's highest professional rank - matador de toros. Also an accomplished painter, many of his popular works in private and public galleries were painted with a single pigment: the blood of the bulls he had killed in the ring. He did this, in his words, to emulate the “primitive matador-painters who had to limit themselves to natural media taken from the very animals they killed.” Bullfighting is an insider's primer on how to be a Matador.
