Frida Kahlo the rebel, the ocultadora, the sardonic pasionaria of art, is the very symbol of the artistic avant-garde and exuberance of Mexican culture in the 20th century. The exhibition at the Scuderie del Quirinale explores Frida Kahlo’s artistic career from start to finish, bringing together her absolute masterpieces from the most important public and private collections in Mexico, Europe and the United States: over forty fabulous portraits and self-portraits, including her extremely celebrated Self-portrait whit Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird painted in 1940 which is on display in Italy for the very first time, and her Self-Portrait wearing a Velvet Dress1926, which she painted at the age of only nineteen for her beloved Alejandro Gomez of Parmigianino and of Modigliani. The exhibition is rounded off by a selection of drawings including the Sketch for the ” Henry Ford Hospital” dated 1932, the famous Plaster Corset in which Frida was entrapped in the last difficult years of her illness, and which she painted with a set of symbols. And lastly, a selection of truly outstanding photographs, in particular those produced by Nickolas Muray including Frida on White Bench, New York, 1939 which was later to become one of Vogue Magazine’s most celebrated cover pictures. Thus the overriding theme of the exhibition is the self-depiction which Frida developed by resorting to the artistic vocabulary of various different eras and which conveys the unique significance that it had for her in the transmission of iconographical, psychological and cultural values.
The pleasure of life can always be found here.
There is something about Rome that you can sense but can never completely grasp: it is the mixture of the sacred and profane, of sweetness and eroticism, of classical beauty and ostentatious fashion, that magnifies it, makes it unique and mysterious. Rome is not just the city of emperors and the popes-since the late 50s and early 60’s Rome has offered the world a way of looking at life that is still unrivaled. It is La Dolce Vita, in which everything is Special, from food to clothing, from technical skills to creativity, and especially it is the ability to see the beauty and joy in any situation. It was a time when great photographers told the city’s secret. Dolce Vita Gallery is the only place in Rome where we celebrate this style with the charm of the photos of one of the greatest Italian photojournalists, Marcello Geppetti.
One visit to Dolce Vita Gallery and you will never see Rome the same way again.
