The Veil and the Rebozo: Fashioning Identity in the Self-Portraits of María Izquierdo
In her self-portraits, the painter María Izquierdo boldly proclaimed herself a member of the new generation of women artists that shaped Mexican culture after the revolution of 1910–20. By wearing clothing associated with Mexico’s Indigenous communities, Izquierdo joined her contemporaries in asserting the integral role of these Native cultures in Mexico’s new national identity. At the same time, her interest in portraiture and the utilization of her own, often ambiguous, visual language, set Izquierdo apart from the cultural production of the wider Mexican art world, which was driven by nationalist interests.

Presented by Mark A. Castro, Jorge Baldor Curator of Latin American Art at the Dallas Museum of Art.

This presentation is part of the Edgar P. Richardson Lecture Series hosted by PORTAL, the Portrait Gallery's Scholarly Center.
