Rufino Tamayo

Mexican, 1899-1991

Rufino Tamayo was born in Oaxaca, Mexico, in 1899 to parents Manuel Arellanes and Florentina Tamayo. Tamayo was active in the mid-20th century in Mexico and New York, painting figurative abstraction with surrealist influences. Although Tamayo studied drawing at the Academy of Art at San Carlos as a young adult, he became dissatisfied and eventually decided to study on his own.
