Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection

Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection will be the Norton’s first large-scale exhibition devoted to Mexican modernism. As a film producer in Mexico City, Jacques Gelman encountered the leading figures of the artistic renaissance that occurred after the end of the Mexican Revolution in 1920. Featuring over 150 works, including paintings and works on paper collected by Jacques and Natasha Gelman alongside photographs and period clothing, the exhibition includes the largest group of works by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera ever on view at the Norton. Presenting these artists’ creative pursuits in a broader context, the exhibition also includes work by Manuel and Lola Álvarez Bravo, Miguel Covarrubias, Gunther Gerzso, María Izquierdo, Carlos Mérida, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Juan Soriano, and Rufino Tamayo. The Gelmans’ close relationship with this community is underscored by the number of portraits of them made by their artist friends in the exhibition. Photographs related to Kahlo, Rivera, and their enduring legacy by a global roster of artists including Lucienne Bloch, Imogen Cunningham, Juan Guzmán, Graciela Iturbide, Nickolas Muray, Edward Weston, and Guillermo Kahlo—Frida’s father—help round out our understanding of these iconic painters.
