Days of exhibition

From the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection

Among art history’s mythic couples, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera reign supreme and continue to leave their mark on human imagination with their extraordinary destiny, more than 50 years after their death. The Mexican artists are recognized the world over both for their history of passion and their outstanding contribution to modern art.

The exhibition includes 20 works by Frida Kahlo, among them the famous Self-Portrait with Necklace (1933), Self-Portrait with Braid (1941) and Diego On My Mind (1943), and 10 works by Diego Rivera. The captivating works by these two artists assembled by Jacques and Natasha Gelman are complimented by key works from their contemporaries, such as Lola Álvarez Bravo, María Izquierdo, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Rufino Tamayo. They were created in a period of rich artistic invention, when artists considered their work's potential to influence society. Their presentation in this exhibition is enhanced by period photographs that give a glimpse of important Mexican cultural figures, most notably Kahlo and Rivera, and offer a sense of their distinctive personalities.
