Background on Lucienne Bloch her art, advocacy and life
Lucienne Bloch (1909-1999) was an accomplished artist and happened to be a peer and close friend of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. In the 1930s, her photographs of their working relationship and personal rapport captured poignant and intimate moments that aligned with many art historical and socio-political contexts of the 20th Century. She created an exceptional legacy as a muralist, sculptor, glass designer, photographer, advocate, political activist, educator, and illustrator. Lucienne Bloch’s contributions span over the last century as her multimedia talent crossed cultural boundaries.
