These Classic Mexican Art Images By Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera Can Be Inside Your Home

Have you ever been inside a museum and wished you could magically take all of your favorite art pieces home with you? Now you sort of can. All of the images that are featured in the show “México 1900–1950: Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, José Clemente Orozco, and the Avant-Garde” at the Dallas Museum of Art are also in a book.

The show, open now until July 16, displays almost 200 pieces of Mexico’s modern art history and includes works of paintings, sculpture, photography, drawings, and films that “document the country’s artistic Renaissance during the first half of the 20th century.”

A statement from the museum reads: “The traveling exhibition showcases the work of titans of Mexican Modernism alongside that of lesser-known pioneers, including a number of rarely seen works by female artists, to reveal the history and development of modern Mexico and its cultural identity.”

Some of the artists featured in the show includes Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, José Clemente Orozco, Ángel Zárraga, Tina Modotti, and David Alfaro Siqueiros, among others.


If you can’t make it out to Dallas, all of the images featured in the show are in the book titled México 1900–1950: Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, José Clemente Orozco, and the Avant-Garde.

Yes, that means all the images from the show can be nicely featured on your coffee table!
