The Mexican Revolution (1910-1920) brought profound cultural change to the nation. Embracing various indigenous histories and mixed European and Mexican heritage created a new Mexican identity. This resulted in broad cultural revolution that elevated indigenous aesthetic and promoted the re-enculturation of traditional craft objects. Artists like Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo promoted these ideals via the muralism movement and personal artistic choices. Mexican arts became popular in the United States beginning in the 1920s, drawing the attention of wealthy American women, who became key patronesses and sponsors to specific artists. This study examines these relationships and how modern Anglo women contribute to the survival of arts in Mexico today.
