One of the most important aspects of The Mexican Museum’s ever-growing permanent collection is the Rosa and Miguel Covarrubias Collection. Gifted to the Museum by Adriana and Tom Williams, long-time Museum supporters and patrons, the collection is comprised of over 2,500 objects including paintings, works on paper, ceramics, photographs and folk art. This exhibition highlights one very important aspect of the collection: Rosa Covarrubias’ traditional, personal collection of Mexican cooking ware and utensils.
Post-revolutionary Mexico saw the emergence of some of the greatest artists of the 20th century – individuals that influenced a whole generation of artists at home and abroad. The exhibition includes over 40 paintings, works on paper, and sculpture, as well as rare books and ephemera representing 30 internationally-known artists.
Beginning with Los Tres Grandes, the exhibition pays tribute to the three most influential Mexican artists of the 20th century: Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Jose Clemente Orozco. Creating the muralist traditions that would deeply influence public art for decades to come, Los Tres Grandes provided the basic styles and techniques which inspired their peers and the literati of their time.
