Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: Mexican Modern Art is a new survey of the masterworks of these artists, set against the backdrop of Mexican Modernism.

This catalog includes more than thirty masterpieces by Kahlo and Rivera from the renowned Gelman Foundation Collection in Mexico City, among them such iconic works as Kahlo’s Autorretrato con Monos (Self-Portrait with Monkeys) and Diego en Mi Pensamiento (Diego on My Mind), and Rivera’s Autorretrato (Self-Portrait) and Retrato de Natasha Gelman (Portrait of Natasha Gelman).
Set in the broader context of the Mexican modernist movement, Kahlo’s and Rivera’s pieces are accompanied by works by such other masters as José Clemente Orozco, Rufino Tamayo, and Leonora Carrington.
