Synopses & Reviews
The self-portraits of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo are renowned for their dream-like quality and emotional intensity. Kahlo overcame injury and personal hardship to become one of the world's most important female artists. Celebrated by the surrealists in her own lifetime, she has attained cult-like status both for her extraordinary art and her tempestuous life with her husband, Diego Rivera, Mexico's most prominent modern painter.
An outstanding selection of paintings by Kahlo and Rivera forms the centerpiece of Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Mexican Modernism: the Jaques and Natasha Gelman Collection. This exhibition is the first opportunity for audiences to view the work of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera in the broader context of Mexican art, and to get a sense of the extraordinary vitality of cultural and artistic life in Mexico during the last century.
The Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection. A beautifully illustrated catalogue on the work of one of the 20th century's most popular female artists.
