Museo Dolores Olmedo

Dolores Olmedo museum. Hacienda de la Noria in Xochimilco, Mexico City

This museum is named after its owner Dolores Olmedo Patiño, an art collector and close friend of the painter Diego Rivera (she modeled for some of his paintings). Most of her collection is in this museum. The museum is dedicated to the painters Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo with several of their paintings (137 by Rivera and 15 by Kahlo), and also has about 3,000 pieces of popular art, pre-Hispanic art, sculptures, engravings and more. Although it was closed indefinitely at the beginning of the year for financial reasons.

Music, Inspiration and Harmony

Palacio de Bellas Artes. Mexico City Downtown

This is a detail of Palacio de Bellas Artes (Palace of Fine Arts) building. The building was constructed between 1904 and 1934.

The sculpture on the left side of the upper arch is dedicated to Music, it consists of a winged muse playing the violin and a man writing the notes of the music he hears. While the one on the right side is dedicated to Inspiration, is a muse with wings in a protective position whispering in the ear of another.

The main figure at the center of the building’s tympanum is Harmony, which represents the balance between positive and negative emotions.

Glass Vessels of Ancient Egypt

San Antonio

It is believed that Egyptians were among the firsts to use glass, as fas as 2500 B. C. The glass of ancient Egypt was very colorful, the result of their craft was very stunning. I love the iridescence of these vessels.
