Rufino Tamayo Museum. / by Ellen Ziegler

Tamayo and his wife collected pre-contact (pre- Columbian) art, and restored an old Oaxacan house to serve as a museum. Their collection was personal, emphasized art over ethnology or religions, and leaned toward the whimsical. The old cultures were fond of humor.
