El Cuarto rosa de Ruth D. Lechuga by Margarita de Orellana( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For those who knew Dr. Ruth Deutsch Lechuga (b. Viena, Austria 1920, exiled in Mexico in 1939 - d. México, 2004), seeing her Pink Room (her vivid, Mexican pink painted bedroom ) was as essential as visiting Frida Kahlo's "Blue House" or certain galleries of the National Anthropology Museum. Put together obsessively by the best-traveled scholar in the 20th century of the deepest heart of Mexico, it contained both modest and astonishing pieces from the carnival of shapes created in this country on the subject of death. As Margarita de Orellana states, "Her collection is one of Mexico's finest, the apartment she lived in formed an unsuspected island within the city, and the Pink Room was an island within this island, the dancing, rollicking heart of Mexican creativity."

En 2004, Artes de México recibió como legado uno de los archivos fotográficos más valiosos del país: el de Ruth D. Lechuga, que nos permite conocer el fascinante rostro de un México que hemos visto desaparecer. Aventurera, curiosa y apasionada, Ruth D. Lechuga llegó a nuestro país durante la segunda guerra mundial, huyendo de los campos de exterminio, dado que su origen era judío. Muy pronto se fascinó con nuestro entorno y con nuestra cultura popular, vital y efervescente. Recorrió los caminos mexicanos lo mismo en avioneta y automóvil que a lomo de burro y a pie. Y durante sus múltiples viajes integró un archivo fotográfico de más de 20,000 negativos que hoy nos permite conocer un México rural poético y vibrante, que queremos compartir con ustedes en nuestro número 100
