Sotheby’s New York to Offer Mural by Rufino Tamayo ~ entitled ‘America’

The November 18th Evening sale of Latin American Art at Sotheby’s will feature Rufino Tamayo’s impressive mural, entitled America (est. $7/9 million). A truly magnificent and aweinspiring mural, America was completed by Rufino Tamayo during an extraordinary five-month burst of production. Working at a feverish pace without assistants, Tamayo painted seven days a week to complete what was to be his most important mural. Today it is rightly hailed as one of his finest masterpieces, the crowning achievement of what was arguably his most glorious period. Of the five murals Tamayo executed in the United States, America is the only one currently held in private hands.
