Art History from Home: Picturing the Mexican Revolution
As Mexico emerged from its revolution in 1920, artists looked for ways to respond to new formations of public life. Seeking to connect native culture and art with a modernist sensibility, new, sometimes romanticized depictions of peasant life took center stage. This session will explore how the work of Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, Frida Kahlo, Alfredo Ramos Martinez, and others sought to forge an artform responsive to the radical cultural transformations happening in Mexico at that time.
