By (artist) Rufino Tamayo

Description

"The brushwork of Tamayo makes me think of moths like the Sphinx, where certain species sport his colours (the privet sphinx, the poplar moth), who have incomparable flying abilities and only move among the flowers when dusk is at its height." (Texte d'André Breton préfaçant l'exposition Rufino Tamayo à la Galerie des Beaux-Arts, en 1950, repris dans l'ouvrage Le surréalisme et la peinture, Nouvelle édition revue et corrigée, 1928-1965, Paris, Gallimard, 1965, p. 234)
