DIEGO RIVERA POR FIN EN MADRID



La Casa de México en España celebra estos días su primer aniversario en Madrid y lo está haciendo a lo grande.

Hay un sinfin de actividades que pretenden acercarnos y darnos a conocer su cultura y, como guinda del pastel, una maravillosa exposición del pintor Diego Rivera, el artista universal mexicano, máximo exponente del modernismo latinoamericano.

La muestra acoge veinte obras que dibujan el recorrido vital del pintor hasta 1948. Piezas que permiten contemplar la intimidad del artista y la evolución en de la forma en la que percibió y representó la realidad que le rodeaba, así como la influencia que grandes maestros como Pablo Picasso o Georges Braque ejercieron en su estilo.

Sobresalen tres obras en las que el artista representó a mujeres relevantes en su vida: el retrato de su madre que realizó cuando aún era estudiante en la Academia de San Carlos; el retrato de estilo simbolista de Angelina Beloff, quien fuera su primera esposa y madre de su primer hijo; así como el retrato de tintes expresionistas de Lupe Marín, segunda esposa y madre de sus dos hijas.

No os la perdais. Sin duda merece la pena.

 

The House of Mexico in Spain is currently celebrating its first anniversary in Madrid and is doing so in a big way.

There are many activities that seek to bring and make us know its culture and, as a special gift, a wonderful exhibition of the painter Diego Rivera, the Mexican universal artist, the greatest exponent of Latin American modernism.

This exhibition presents 20 works by this essential Mexican artist. Via the 20 paintings on display, you can observe works from the time when Diego Rivera was a student at the San Carlos Academy up to those made in 1948, giving you a complete look at his artistic output. The works offer visitors a peek into the artist's life as well as the changes in form showing how he perceived and represented the reality around him.

Highlights include three pieces where Rivera painted important women in his life: the portrait of his mother he made when he was still a student at San Carlos; the symbolist-style portrait of Angelina Beloff, who was his first wife and mother of his first child; and the portrait with expressionist colours of Lupe Marín, his second wife and mother of his two daughters.
