Diego Rivera | Portrait of a Spaniard, 1912




The illustrious Salon d’Automne - from its inception the world’s leading avant-garde venue along with the Salon des Artistes Indépendants - opened its annual exhibition at the Grand Palais on October 1, 1912.
Displaying over seventeen hundred paintings and sculptures to an expectant Parisian public, it included a portrait section of nineteenth century paintings all executed by French artists** and, most notoriously, a gallery of increasingly scandalous and rejected Cubist works such as La Maison Cubiste, a three dimensional installation that housed works by Duchamp**, Léger, Gleizes and others.

Frida Kahlo (1907-1954)



Frida Kahlo was s Mexican painter who produced mostly small, highly personal self-portraits using elements of fantasy and a style inspired by native popular art. Kahlo was born in Coyoacán, Mexico, near Mexico City.
While a student at Mexico City's National Preparatory School in 1925, she sustained severe injuries in a bus accident. During her recuperation, Kahlo taught herself to paint.
After three years she took some of her first paintings to the famous Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, who encouraged her to continue her work. Kahlo and Rivera married in 1929.
Influenced by Rivera's work, Kahlo adopted his use of broad, simplified color areas and a deliberately naive style in her paintings.

Fidel Garcia (Mexican, 1960)




The art of Fidel Garcia blends figurative realism and abstract expressionism. His paintings call upon the viewer to experience the concurrency of our corporeal and spiritual selves, the coincidence of reality and fantasy, and the simultaneous existence of the physical and the metaphysical.
Rather than simply asking for acknowledgement of these diametric forces, Garcia’s paintings assist us in finding the harmony and balance between them.
Each image that emerges from his evolving series of canvases explores an unexpected and uncharted inner and outer world of human imagination.

Mariana Palova, 1990




Mariana Palova finds within the positive a living and colorful metamorphosis- the essence of her own cosmogony. Playing with the influence of her experiences and her transformations, Mariana surrounds herself with an aura showing special devotion to the nature elements, analogies, the substitution, human monsters and the astrologic environment.
Despite her young age and relative inexperience, her work has slipped quickly into important art/social circles. Equally rejected and loved, Mariana's sensitive artwork, evokes overflowing passion and a philosophy of life based on the beauty of human metamorphosis and the allure of imagination, eschewing all that is sick and grotesque in the world.
