This book is published to accompany the exhibition at the Art Gallery of New South Wales showing from 23 June to 9 October 2016. It brings together such significant paintings as Kahlo’s Diego on my mind and Rivera’s Landscape with cacti, painted for his 1931 solo show at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, placing the artists in dialogue. In doing so, it reveals their fiercely independent artistic visions while also pointing to political, cultural and personal concerns that affected them both. It includes Kahlo and Rivera’s portraits of Natasha Gelman, as well as a group of photographs from the collection of Throckmorton Fine Art, New York, by figures such as Edward Weston, Lola Alvarez Bravo and Guillermo Kahlo, Frida’s father. Spanning from 1928 until Kahlo’s death in 1954, the photographs add another dimension to Kahlo and Rivera’s art practices and help to relate the extraordinary story of their life together.

Conceived by four of the most influential art historians of our time, this groundbreaking book has now been updated and expanded to include the most recent developments in contemporary art. The original authors have been joined by David Joselit to provide the most comprehensive history of art in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries ever published.
More than 120 articles are presented in a year-by-year structure, with each focusing on a crucial event—from the creation of a seminal work to the opening of a major exhibition—to tell the myriad stories of art from 1900 to the present. Key turning points and breakthroughs in modernism are explored, as are the antimodernist reactions that proposed alternative visions of art and the world. The book's flexible structure and extensive cross-referencing allow readers to follow the many developments in the art world, from the influence of surrealism to the emergence of minimalism. A four-part introduction outlines the methodologies governing the discipline of art history, and two roundtable discussions examine the questions raised by the past while looking ahead to the futur
