Two Bathers was realized with the technique of tempera on paper and executed by Mexican painter Rufino Tamayo in 1934. As of October 2016 It's on permanent display in Museo Soumaya.


His oeuvre is a reference to his muse Olga Tamayo. Both figures wear a bun that used to wear frequently his wife.

The Indian heritage is visible in the skin color. The master created a new narrative of Mexico and the femininity. The red tree creates a contrasting balance with the weight of the two female figures.

In 2016 the piece was displayed for the "ofrenda" [altar] for the Day of the Dead of Museo Soumaya– Plaza Loreto, Mexico City, Mexico
