Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: the Golden Age of Mexican Painting

Frida Kahlo (1907–1954) and Diego Rivera (1886–1957) have iconic status in Mexico. The Mexican Revolution of 1910 swept away the old régime and banished European influence in the arts. Kahlo and Rivera, in their different ways, helped to shape the cultural identity of twentieth-century Mexico. Together they made Mexico a magnet for the rest of the world. Chloë Sayer is an independent scholar, author and curator, specialising in the art and culture of Latin America.
