Recent changes[edit]

Probably focus a little too heavily on painting and obviously mostly 20th century work, but hopefully everyone can agree it's an improvement. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Goncalvesca1 (talkcontribs) 22:13, 23 October 2011 (UTC)


Obviously, this page could be radically improved. --Jbmurray 10:55, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

The article mentions that she is "by far the most famous and well-known Latin American artist." That's quite a statement, especially given how famous and well-known Diego Rivera is. It may be true, but there should be a citation there to back up the claim.Chiwara 19:47, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

I agree (though I suspect the claim is almost certainly true). So I toned it down. NB however that that particular bit of text is floating around on a bunch of Wikipedia articles. The thing would be to go through them all and change it. --Jbmurray 20:08, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

This page is an abherration of all that art from Latin America is or stands for. This is an ignorant aticle and if a similar one was writen about "Art from Asia", "Art from Europe" or "Art from Africa", it would most certainly be deleted. Frida Kahlo is most famous where? In America? In Europe? In thee world? She is only well known because of a Hollywood film glamourised her name, within Latin America other artists are far more famous than she, yet they are not mentioned here. This article needs expanding, modernising and most probably, breakng down into country by country articles. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:36, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Well, I'm quite sure it's impossible to say that such a statement could be considered "true". She might be more popular now in the USA or some other English-speaking countries, because of Hollywood movies industry. In history of art, even her husband, Diego, is a much more prominent name, besides from others like Torres Garcia or Matta. Frida is a contemporary "fever", she doesn't have (and never had) that much importance to Latin American art like this article says. Dornicke (talk) 23:56, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

Constructivist Movement[edit]

This section requires cleanup, expansion and references. I have removed the sentence "The Constructivist Movement was founded in Russia around 1913 by Vladimir Tatlin" because it is neither true nor relevant. Gabsvillalobos (talk) 22:14, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
