Leland Little Auctions is proud to offer a single-owner collection of graphic works by Rufino Tamayo (Lots 536-561) and Georges Braque (Lots 583-602), two of the most important artists of the 20th century who were instrumental in the formation of modern art. These large groupings of prints by both artists – totaling 46 works – are unprecedented in size, quality, and depth and have rarely been offered in this scale at auction.

Tamayo’s works frequently headline major Latin American Art auctions. This extensive collection of prints serves almost as a retrospective of his artistic career, spanning nearly 40 years of work and demonstrating his skillful abstraction of the form through various graphic mediums.

Scattered foxing; some staining and what looks to be a small repaired tear (5/8 in.) lower margin; not examined out of frame.
