These are four of the paintings in a special exhibit currently at the Art Museum

of Fort Lauderdale. They are quite splendid. All of the works on display are

from two large private collections of modern Mexican art.

Unfortunately, there is not too much else.




"Diego on My Mind" by Frida Kahlo.


This is one of about 45 self-portraits which Frida Kahlo did during her

lifetime. Diego was her husband, at times, and divorced at others.

He also had an affair with her sister, among many others.

Surrealist. Psychological.






"Self-Portrait with Monkeys" by Frida Kahlo


This is another of the self-portraits by Frida. She thought herself

ugly and simian looking. It was a misperception, obviously.

Her eyebrows are very famous.





"Portrait of Natasha Gelman" by Diego Rivera.


Mrs. Gelman and her husband were owners of one of the great

collections of Latin American art, and they began collecting in

the 1930s. Rivera was the most famous Mexican/Latin American

artist of the 20th century. Look at those calla lilies and legs!






"Children and Sunflowers" by Diego Rivera.


Rivera is most famous for his huge, public, political wall paintings

in public buildings in Mexico City, but he also did many smaller

paintings of ordinary Mexican people.
