While the modern art world was exploring primitivism and championing indigenous culture through assimilation, Rufino Tamayo sought to level the artistic playing filed. In this episode of Anatomy of an Artwork, discover his masterpiece La Máscara roja, offered as a highlight of Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Evening sale in New York. Filled with references to ancient sculpture, mexican folklore, and modern art, La Máscara roja is a foundational painting in the artist’s oeuvre that attempts to capture the essence of indigenous values through form rather than thematics. (New York | 12 November)
