Description for the presentation 2013-2014 in the National Museum of Modern Art

This painting is an illustration of Rufino Tamayo’s synthesis of the Pre-Columbian art heritage and modern Western painting. Produced in 1950, during the artist’s Paris period, this chimera-like musician with his grimacing hammer-head, simplified forms and sinuous contours naturally appealed to the Surrealists, starting with André Breton, who wrote a preface for Tamayo’s first Paris exhibition that year.
