ANGELINA BELOFF (Saint Petersburg, 1879 - Mexico, 1969).
Watercolour, ink and graphite on paper.

Angelina Beloff was an artist of Russian origin who did most of her work in Mexico. However, she is best known as Diego Rivera's first wife, and her work has been overshadowed by his and his later wives. She studied art in St. Petersburg and then went to begin her artistic career in Paris in 1909. That same year she met and married Rivera. In 1921, Rivera returned to Mexico, leaving Beloff behind and divorcing her. She never remarried. In 1932, through her contacts with various Mexican artists, she worked as an art teacher, created puppet shows and had several exhibitions of her work in the 1950s. Most of her work was done in Mexico, using Mexican imagery, but her artistic style remained European.
Her works are kept in the Museo Dolores Olmedo, the Museo Blaisten and the MUNAE Museo Nacional de la Estampa in Mexico City.
