Tamayo Painting

Rufino Tamayo, Man and Woman, 1926, Philadelphia Museum of Art

I keep revisiting this painting at the PMA, Man and Woman, by Mexican artist Rufino Tamayo. (The blue lines in hair are not in the painting but a reflection of lights). 

It's the rare kind of painting I don't just admire or know to be good but that I really want to have made.  I think this is a perfect painting.  He must have been so satisfied.  It touches back in time, a couple, a story simple and well known.  And it touches forward to today.
