Rufino Tamayo (Mexican, 1899 - 1991)

Born in Oaxaca, Mexico of Zapotex parents, Rufino Tamayo moved to Mexico City as a boy. He studied at the San Carlos Academy in 1917. His work has been exhibited widely in Central and South America, Europe, and the United States. He exhibited at the Weyhe Gallery in New York in 1926. In 1946 the Palace of Fine Arts in Mexico City exhibited a retrospective of Tamayo's work, and in 1978, the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., held an individual exhibition of his work that traveled to several museums. In 1979 a major retrospective, Rufino Tamayo: Myth and Magic, was shown at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.
