Lot 8049
This lot consists of a hand-rendered mixed media (acrylic and colored pencil) illustration on paper, with "Tamayo" hand written at bottom right. Signature is accompanied by a small inscription which reads, "O-26". This richly colored image features an over-simplified, almost geometric human form that balances a sphere in one hand. The form is surrounded by referential shape and line that only adds to the calculated precision of this gorgeous piece. Done in the expressive Cubist style of Rufino Tamayo (Mexican, 1899-1991). Unframed piece measures approximately 12.5" x 11.5".
