Tamayo: The New York Years (Hardcover)


Special Order—Subject to Availability

Mexican American artist Rufino Tamayo (1899-1991) is best known for his boldy-colored, semi-abstract paintings. 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, at 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 dream-like, celestial-themed compositions.

E. Carmen Ramos is the curator of Latino art at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
