The painting of Rufino Tamayo has acquired decisive importance in contemporary art in terms both of its high quality, maintained throughout a long, intense life, and its special significance. He was very clearly one of the greatest of American creators and, at the same time, one of the artists who managed to penetrate deepest into the reality of today’s Man, going beyond his historical dimension. His knowledge of the great pre-Columbian cultures allowed him to make an extraordinary synthesis which he expressed through a deliberately limited range of colours in order to give the freest possible rein to tonal interplays. His subject matter tends to be simple- figures of men and women, animals., almost sketchy, although charged with content. “One might say” writes Jacques Lassaigne in this book, “that, in the same way as pre-Columbian art, Tamayo’s painting is at the same time metaphor, geometry and transfiguration.” In his turn, Octavio Paz comments in the other text included in the book: “This is painting as a double of the universe: not its symbol but its projection on the canvas. The picture is not a represntation or an ensemble of signs; it is a constellation of forces. “ Through this double approach, that of the prestigious French critic and that of the great Mexican poet and essayist, the reader is able to unravel better the mysteries of one of the great artistic creations of our era.
