The Art and Life of Frida Kahlo
During a post-revolutionary period in Mexico marked by large scale murals on epic themes, Frida Kahlo produced highly personal works typically on an intimate scale. Schooled within the educational reform movement of indigenismo, Frida drew inspiration from pre-columbian history and Mexico’s folk costumes and traditions. At the same time, her paintings tell the story of her complicated life in an expressive, unique style. In this presentation, art historian Jeff Mishur discusses Frida’s work within the context of art history. We'll see a number of self-portraits in this program as well as several works Frida painted during an extended period of travel in the United States in the company of her husband and fellow artist Diego Rivera.
