Did you ever imagine the possibility of seeing Frida Kahlo’s drawings with you own eyes? Denver Art Museum has granted your wish! From October 25 to January 24, 2021 Denver Art Museum will have paintings and photographs of these following artists; Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Lola Alvarez Bravo, Gunther Gerzso, Maria Izquierdo, Carlos Merida and others!

The exhibition will include 13 works by Diego. This image on the left is one of Diego’s most important and beautiful artworks. Calla Lilly Vendor, 1943. Calla Lilly Vendor brought a strong message to to Mexicans after the revolution. United. That was the simple but powerful message the artwork brought.

Maria Izquierdo:

Maria Izquierdo is an artist who was forgotten and blocked by history for her political view. Maria wasn’t just forgotten but she died in poverty. Maria Izquierdo’s life is very sad she was paralyzed on the right side of her body due to suffering an attack and her husband stole money. Although she suffered very much she never quit drawing. The drawing below is called Bride from Papantla which will be exhibited along with the other drawings in the Denver Art Museum.

These are just a few drawings that will be in the art museum. If you want to buy tickets or learn a few more details about the event check out the Denver Art Museums website!
