Mexicanidad and the Radical Transformation of Mexican Modern Art

New York | 12-13 November

In this episode of Masterworks: Expert Voices, discover how revolutionary works from Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, David Siqueiros and José Orozco redefined Mexican Modern Art. By placing an emphasis on Mexico's pre-columbian cultures and illuminating the violent legacy of Spanish colonial rule, these artists reinforced a sense of Mexican pride and national identity. These pieces and more will be available in Sotheby's Impressionist & Modern Art Evening and Day sales. (12-13 November | New York)
