Rodolfo Nieto was one of the foremost representatives of the so-called Oaxacan School, which combines contemporary art movements with traditional Mexican folk art. Animals were central to Nieto's oeuvre, and, according to the artist, the first ever image he drew was that of a cat.While studying and working in Paris during the 1960s, the exposure to international contemporary art movements resulted in Nieto developing a personal style which interpreted'alebrijes' (brightly coloured Mexican folk-art sculptures of mythical creatures) through the prism of his aesthetic vision. The resulting works, known as the Bestiario series, had become one of the stylistic cornerstones of the Oaxacan School movement. The present work, Toro, is a fitting illustration of Nieto's vision, where an'alebrije' of a bull is reinterpreted through the prism of modern and contemporary art movements.
This brightly coloured wood block print, notable for its textural qualities, volume, dimensionality, and surface reliefs, is known as a xylograph, a specialist type of printing technique in which Nieto excelled. Acquired in the 1970s, and kept in a pristine condition, this rare to the market print is a must-have for emerging and established connoisseurs of international art and print collecting.
