An exhibition that explores the whole of her artistic career. Pure masterpieces from public and private collections in Mexico, Europe and the United States. Self depiction is the central theme, with more than forty fabulous portraits, including: Self portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird (for the first time in Italy).
Frida is the very symbol of an artistic avant-garde of Mexican culture in the 20th century. Always rebel, her works mix the most important cultural movements of her period: Revolutionary Pauperism, Stridentism, Surrealism and Magical Realism.
The exhibition hosts also works from other artists who were active during the period including of course her husband, Diego Rivera (Portrait of Natasha Gelman, 1943 and Nude, 1930 among others) and also Jose Clemente Orozco, Jose David Alfaro Siqueiros and Maria Izquierdo.
