Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection
This text is only available in Italian
Few artists have captured the public’s imagination with the force of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo and her husband, Mexican painter and muralist Diego Rivera. Jacques and Natasha Gelman became Mexican citizens in 1942 and began amassing Mexican art, sustaining a growing collection of Mexican modernists, like Kahlo and Rivera (with whom they became close friends) and others. Their unparalleled collection shows the richness of Mexican art through painting, drawing, photography, and film.
