"Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Mexican Modernism"
2001-07-14 until 2001-10-28
National Gallery of Australia
Canberra, AC, AU Australia

The haunting self-portraits of the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo are renowned for their dream-like quality and emotional intensity. Strong, passionate, and endowed with an indomitable spirit, Kahlo overcame injury and personal hardship to become one of the world's best-known woman artists.

Celebrated by the Surrealists in her own lifetime, Kahlo has attained cult-like status both for her extraordinary art and her tempestuous love-life with husband Diego Rivera, Mexico's most prominent modern artist.

An outstanding selection of paintings by both Kahlo and Rivera forms the centrepiece of the Jacques and Natasha Gelman collection, widely regarded as the most significant private holding of 20th century Mexican art. Jacques Gelman, the Russian emigre film producer, and his wife Natasha built up the collection over many years of acquaintance and collaboration with Mexico's greatest creative artists. Including work by other famous painters such as Josť Clemente Orozco, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Rufino Tamayo, this exhibition will showcase Kahlo's and Rivera's work and present them in the context of a broader history of Mexican modernism.
