The Dallas Museum of Art has a virtual tour of its spring exhibition surveying representations of women in Mexican Modernism. Flores Mexicanas: Women in Modern Mexican Art was inspired by the loan of the monumental painting Flores Mexicanas by Alfredo Ramos Martínez to the DMA from the Missouri History Museum in St. Louis.
Recently rediscovered, Flores Mexicanas is being shown to the public for only the second time in nearly a century. The exhibition pairs two galleries: one dedicated to the work of Ramos Martínez, a father of Mexican Modernism, and an accompanying gallery of more than 25 paintings, works on paper, and textiles by other renowned artists working in Mexico during the first half of the 20th century.
Currently closed to the public due to coronavirus cautions, the museum's online view of the exhibition provides visitors the opportunity to explore the meanings behind depictions of women created during a transformative period in Mexican history.
