Representing the Golden Age of Mexican painting, Kahlo and Rivera have iconic status in Mexico, and after the 1910 Mexican Revolution helped to shape the cultural identity of modern Mexico. The 2005 retrospective of Kahlo at the Tate Modern drew 340,000 visitors and the life and work of the couple has inspired films and books.
