Teresa del Conde, director of Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico, is editor of the book and contributes two essays. Rafael Tovar, Gerardo Estrada, Fernando del Paso, Xavier Moyssen, Juan Coronel Rivera, Ingrid Suckaer, and Robert Valerio also contribute essays.From Library Journal:
Long recognized as one of the preeminent painters of Mexico, Rufino Tamayo (1899-1991) stands apart from his contemporaries--Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Jos? Clemente Orozco--by virtue of his rejection of their nationalistic didacticism and his adherence to a vision within the broader currents of an international modernism. Tamayo's evocative imagery and extraordinary painterly refinement are sumptuously evoked in this volume's more than 200 excellent color reproductions. Unfortunately, the eight accompanying essays never rise above the level of the merely adequate. The best of the essays, by editor Conde, director of the Museum of Modern Art, Mexico City, engages in an interesting, if rather impressionistic, "dialog" between the author and earlier writers who have considered the artist's style, artistic relationships, public appreciation, and critical reception. Another useful but also occasionally poetically opaque exploration discusses the artist's stylistic development in light of contemporary currents of Mexican, European, and American art. A sketchy overview of the painter's life, a pedestrian analysis of his thematic preoccupations, and a gathering of unenlightening reminiscences add little to this ultimately unsatisfying effort. Recommended only for large popular art collections where there is an interest in Tamayo.
