Framed Mexican Watercolor on Paper Attributed to Rufino Tamayo

$ 6,500
  • Description
    A framed watercolor and gouache on paper depicting sliced watermelon on a color block background, signed Tamayo and dated 1945 as shown. The work was in keeping with the style of Rufino Tamayo and it retains a paper label from Salon de la Plastica Mexicana, listing the detail info. SPM was formed in 1949 to promote contemporary Mexican artists and was and still is affiliated with INBA (Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes), in which may famous Mexican artists including Tamayo were contributing members. In addition, there is a COA issued by a Mexican curator and authenticator from 2004 (see detail picture). However, it needs to be noted that this work was an estate found and we can't be certain of its authenticity, therefore it is being offered as a piece attributed to not by Rufino Tamayo.
    The image size is 17.5" x 11.5".
