Rufino Tamayo

But Rufino Tamayo’s “America” didn’t belong to the Dallas Museum of Art. Tamayo’s largest mural at 13 ft by 15 ft, it was commissioned by the Bank of  Southwest in Houston in 1955. it was bought by an anonymous private collector in 1993 — and has been on loan to the DMA ever since.

The nearly $7 million price — at a Sotheby’s auction of Latin American art — was a little lower than expected.
