The Gelman Collection between love and art
Two Mexicans in Padova
A new unforgettable exhibition is set up in Padua, created thanks to works from the celebrated collection of Jacques and Natasha Gelman, the American couple who had an intense relationship with the two Mexican artists, by whom they also had their portraits taken.
In addition to twenty-three works by Frida Kahlo and nine by Diego Rivera, there is also a photograph by Karl Wilhem Kahlo, a German Jew who emigrated to Mexico and who greatly influenced Frida's art. Enriching the exhibition is a colourful section of Mexican costumes, the colours of which are reflected in the works.
The exhibition is an iconic, strong and living portrait of Mexico.
