The artists represented in the exhibition Breaking Ground: 20th-Century Latin American Art at the Norton Simon Museum are known for their innovative exploration of the human figure. From Antonio Frasconi’s patterned woodcut featuring fishermen to Rufino Tamayo’s figural circles and rectangles, their works re-imagine the body on paper. Experiment with abstraction by using paper cut-outs to create your own vision of the human form.
