At the last Junket, Ana Perches gave a talk on the great Mexican artist, Rufino Tamayo, born in Oaxaca of Zapotec heritage (August 26, 1899 – June 24, 1991). Portfolio.

“Rufino Tamayo was a man of few words but with remarkable clarity of vision. Throughout his lifetime he remained fiercely committed to painting as a spiritual activity, and he bravely defended his pursuit of what he called the ” Mexican tradition”. Yet, his language was so universal, so timeless, that people from every country in the world respond to his paintings. There’s little doubt they will continue to do so for generations to come.” (Rufino Tamayo, Mexconnect)
