Tamayo, Rufino (Mexican, 1899-1991), Man and Woman, or Natives with Maguey, 1926, woodcut on thin paper, signed in pencil to lower right margin, image 9.75 inches square, full sheet 12 x 12.25 inches, in a window mat. Published by Wyhe Gallery. From the Metropolitan Museum of Art: This print is one of eight that Tamayo made between 1925 and 1928 in New York, where they were sold by Weyhe Gallery. Set in a mountainous landscape, an Indian man and woman face each other. Maguey plants, a type of agave, grow in the background. They are a symbol of Mexican culture, and the sugars they produce are used for making tequila.
