Carlos Phillips Olmedo during the press conference.

MEXICO CITY.- The Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes (National Institute of Fine Arts) will honor Dolores Olmedo on the centenary of her birth with the exhibition Dolores Olmedo: History of a Collection which will open at the Diego Rivera Hall in the Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes (Museum of the Palace of Fine Arts), on December 9.

The exhibition is a coordinated effort between the Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes and the Museo Dolores Olmedo which shows a selection from her collections that represent the labor that Dolores Olmedo undertook as an art aficionado and that allows to appreciate life of this outstanding woman in Mexico’s cultural life of the 29th century.

In this exhibition visitors will be able to appreciate paintings made by Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and Angelina Beloff; works of art from the pre-hispanic and popular art. Apart from photographs and documents that show aspects of the life and work of this remarkable woman.

As part of the tribute to Dolores Olmedo, prior to the inauguration of the exhibition, there will be a round table discussion in which Juan Coronel Rivera, Gerardo Estrada, Carlos Monsivais and Carlos Phillips Olmedo will participate. Dolores Olmedo occupied a fundamental role in the last Century, when she became the main collector of the works of art of Mexico’s artistic icons Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. She was first a well recognized entrepreneur before becoming a cultural promoter.

Today the Museo Dolores Olmedo is considered a must when trying to understand the art of not only Diego Rivera but also Frida Kahlo and Angelina Belfo, this last one with more than 40 drawings and an oil on canvas was received by Dolores two days before she opened her museum. These days, this institution is an internationally recognized cultural and artistic center.

In the museum there are 150 works of art made by Diego Rivera- famous throughout the world for his murals, but represented at the Museo Dolores Olmedo by his canvas paintings- 26 paintings by Frida Kahlo, more than 900 archaeological pieces from a diverse variety of Mexican cultures, colonial furniture and an amazing Collection of popular art from several Mexican states.
