The Mexican Painter, Rufino Tamayo (1899-1991) was first recognised 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, D.C., 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. In addition to 1999 being Tamayo's centenary year, no other large, individual monograph on his work is currently available.About the Author:
