‘Tamayo: The New York Years’ @ Smithsonian American Art Museum

This exhibit will examine the incredible influences between the work of Rufino Tamayo and the American art scene, a first for a major museum. Tamayo was a Mexican artist who lived in New York City off and on for almost three decades, composing Modernist paintings that incorporated Mexican subjects into urban and dreamlike settings, as well as a series of animal paintings that receive a special focus in the exhibit. See how Tamayo was inspired by American artists like Jackson Pollock, and how the Mexican painter became a symbol of a 20th century shift in American art.
