The Gelman Collection is an important collection of more than 300 works of modern and contemporary Mexican art based in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Established by Jacques and Natasha Gelman in 1943 as a private collection it includes many iconic works by major Mexican Modernists including Frida Kahlo’s, Self-Portrait with Monkeys, 1943, and Diego on My Mind, 1943, as well as outstanding works by Diego Rivera, Calla Lily Vendor, 1943, and Landscape with Cactus, 1931. The exhibition at IMMA presents a selection of works from the modern collection including 17 works by Frida Kahlo, 11 by Diego Rivera, as well as major works by David Alfaro Siqueiros, José Clemente Orozco, Leonora Carrington, Rufino Tamayo and Francisco Toledo among others.

The exhibition will tour to the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, and Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver.

A catalogue published by the Muros Foundation accompanies the exhibition. It includes texts by writers Pierre Schneider and Raquel Tibol; art historian Hayden Herrera, and an introduction by Robert R Littman.

The exhibition is sponsored by the Clarence Hotel, The Embassy of Mexico, The Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs and The Irish Times.
