RUFINO TAMAYO
(Mexico, 1899 - 1991)

Rufino Tamayo was a great formal innovator, both as a colorist and as a master of the nuances of surface and texture. As a figurative artist, he created a unique synthesis of European Modernism and the ancient arts of Mexico. His themes include the transitory nature of civilization, and man's longing for the eternal.
