Diego Rivera
Desnudo de Frida Kahlo

1930

About the Item

This portrait depicts Rivera's second wife, the artist Frida Kahlo (1907-54), sitting on a bed wearing stockings and shoes and fastening rows of beads around her neck. An accident whilst travelling on a trolleybus during her adolescence had left Kahlo disabled; she was also unable to bear children. The couple both conducted extra-marital affairs, and divorced in 1939, only to remarry the following year. Kahlo died at the age of forty-seven. The circumstances of her death remain unknown but there is some suggestion that she committed suicide. Primarily a painter, Kahlo made only one print, a self-portrait in which she expressed her pain after a miscarriage in 1932. Rivera made this print in Mexico City a year after he married Kahlo, and it is one of the first prints he made when approached by Carl Zigrosser of the Weyhe Gallery. It shows the influence of Rivera's time in Europe, the soft curves of the sitter's body and the use of large, smooth surfaces resembling the style of Henri Matisse, particularly his Fauve works.

  • Two Nudes Posing With Armchair, Hand Drawn Stone Lithograph, Stiletto Heels
    By Mel Ramos
    Located in Union City, NJ
    Two Nudes Posing With Armchair is an original hand drawn stone lithograph attributed to the American Pop artist Mel Ramos, printed at Bank Street Atelier NYC circa 1970 using black, olive, tan and orange inks on Buff color ARCHES paper 100% acid free. Two Nudes Posing With Armchair is an unusual, almost surreal composition depicting two nude young women; one seated with knees bent, sitting sideways on top of a tan and orange print armchair; the other woman is scooched down underneath the chair. Two mysterious stiletto heel shoes are visible - one below the chair and one above in the seated woman's hands adding to the intrigue of this interior setting. Print size - 16.5 x 12 inches, unframed, excellent condition, full bleed image no margins, rare unsigned Printers Proof/Trial Proof from an unknown early edition, fine hand printed impression. Historic Note on Bank Street Atelier - Bank Street Atelier was founded in 1969 by George J. Goodstadt (Fine Arts Publisher) along with Jacques Mourlot, third generation of the famous Mourlot print shop in Paris, France. Bank Street Atelier became one of the premier lithography print studios in NYC at that time and became a major graphic center, which attracted many of the Modern American Masters of the 1970’s, including Alexander Calder, Willem deKooning, Red Grooms, Al Hirschfeld, Ellsworth Kelly, Romare Bearden, Fairfield Porter, Jasper Johns, Frank Stella, Alex Katz and many more. The resulting prints were produced with the highest quality and earned a reputation in the art world for professionalism and excellence in lithographic printmaking. About the artist - Mel Ramos(1935 - 2018, California) Mel Ramos is an American Pop artist best known for his female nudes painted alongside brand logos. The artist’s coupling of women with familiar products like martini glasses and bananas serves as a commentary on the ways in which capitalism has employed the female body. “I make sure that my pictures are not too erotic and that they always have a trace of humor,” he said of his work. “I make sure they are ‘in good taste.’ Either you understand it or not.” Born on July 24, 1935 in Sacramento, CA, Ramos like Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, found inspiration through the comic books Wonder Woman and Superman growing up and later pinup posters...
