Guided Tours in French
with docent Diane Beckman
Wednesday November 20th, 12pm:
Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera,
and Mexican Modernism
from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection
Experience the lives, loves, and influence of two art icons of the 20th century. The myths that surrounded them in their lifetime arose not only from their significant bodies of work, but also from their friendships (and conflicts) with leading political figures and their passionate, tempestuous personal relationships.
Kahlo and Rivera’s works vary in scope and inspiration. She is best-known for her intense self-portraits, whereas he worked as a large-scale muralist in Mexico and the United States. Kahlo’s work is deeply personal, often depicting her own dreams, painful personal experiences, and affinity with Mexican culture, while Rivera’s more public art portrays everyday people swept up in industrial and cultural revolution. Both artists forged the way for Mexican art as a significant element of the 20th century and beyond.
