Art Stories


Self Portrait, by Diego Rivera (Mexican, 1886-1957). January 1941, oil on canvas. Gift of Irene Rich Clifford.

Selected by Luisa Motten '83

This picture always spoke to me when I was at Smith, maybe because I had lived in Mexico for a couple of years.  I had admired Diego's work and the self-portrait was insight into who he was.  When the Smith collection came west to the Seattle Art Museum in 2002, it was such a moving experience for me to see the art again.  It was like seeing old friends and it brought back memories of hours wandering through the art museum, a place where I found peace and joy.
