Tamayo: The New York Years
Tamayo: The New York Years explores the influences between Rufino Tamayo (1899–1991), a major Mexican modernist best known for his boldly colored, semiabstract paintings, and the American art world. It reveals how he forged a new path in the modern art of the Americas and contributed to New York’s dynamic cultural scene as the city was becoming a center of postwar art.
This is the first volume to focus on Tamayo's work during his time in New York City, where he lived from the late 1920s to 1949, a time of unparalleled transatlantic cross-cultural exchange. Tamayo: The New York Years offers a unique opportunity to trace his artistic development through sixty works—from early woodcuts and bold canvasses, through paintings depicting the modern city, to his final dreamlike, celestial-themed compositions.
