“Nacimiento de nuestra nacionalidad” de Rufino Tamayo

Open - Limited Services / Capacity

This mural locates inside the splendid Palacio de Bellas Artes and is part of the permanent collection, along with other ouvres by diverse muralists.

It is a canvas painted with vinylite; it represents the conquest and the birth of a new national identity abstractedly, like Tamayo did. Transcultural complexity may be understood throughout shapes and colors, which also represent violence and destruction, of the Conquest.
