MFAH’s Combative Ramiréz in Wall St. Journal, calls Frida Kahlo Overappreciated Drama Queen

Blogger Judith Dobrzynski interviews the MFAH’s Mari Carmen Ramírez for today’s Wall St. Journal on the eve of the launch of the museum’s vast digital archive of Latin American art source materials. The first 2,500 documents from Argentina, Mexico and the American Midwest go online on Thursday, gathered and scanned under the museum’s International Center for the Arts of the Americas under Ramirez’s direction.

    The link is the highlighted word “interview,” above. The reference is in Paragraph 2 of Dobrzynski’s piece.

  2. Mr. Davenport: The headline (“MFAH’s Combative Ramiréz in Wall St. Journal, calls Frida Kahlo Overappreciated Drama Queen”) is bullshit. Had the words “over-appreciated drama queen” ever exited Ms. Ramírez’s “combative” mouth at any time during their interview, Mr. Dobrzynski would have put them in quotes. He didn’t because these words appear to be his own.

  3. Appreciation of Frida Kahlo’s work has been recent and long overdue. And wouldn’t the volatile, womanizing husband of hers fit the “drama” in this case “king” description more aptly?
