Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0821226517, Hardcover)

The Mexican painter Rufino Tamayo (1899-1991) was first recognized in a 1930s' publication on the contemporary artists of Mexico. He lived in Paris and in New York for several years but did not become known in the States until after an exhibition of his work at the Philips Collection in Washington DC, in 1978, followed by a major retrospective of his work at the Guggenheim Museum in 1979. Unlike his contemporaries, the nationalistic muralists Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros, Tamayo preferred to express his Hispanic heritage through oil paintings and frescos based on pre-Columbian drawings and Mexican folk art, painted in vibrant colours and with Cubist influences. His main subjects were myths, fables, the human (often female) figure, fruits and animals. This volume is published to celebrate Tamayo's centenary year.
