The Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection is widely regarded as the world's most significant private holding of twentieth-century art. Dating from the 1910s to the 1990s, the paintings, drawings, sculptures, and photographs in the collection represent the broad range of artistic developments in Mexico during the last century -- from early experiments with European Cubism to post-revolutionary efforts to develop an indigenous Mexican aesthetic, to the diverse styles and techniques of post-World War II abstraction and realism. This exhibition catalogue features large color reproductions of 75 works by many of the most important Mexican artists, including Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Maria Izquierdo, Jose Clemente Orzoco, Carlos Mevida, and Rufino Tamayo, as well as a number of significant contemporary figures such as Cisco Jimenez, Sylvia Gruner, and Miguel Calderon. Providing descriptions of individual works as well as artist biographies, this is an excellent overview of major Mexican artists of the twentieth century.
