    When Tina Modotti and Edward Weston arrived in Mexico in 1923, they were quickly and readily absorbed by a tight circle of artists that included the muralist Diego Rivera and the Mexican Folkways magazine editor and artist Jean Charlot. Their smooth integration into the group yielded an engaging, interactive artistic dialogue in which members of the group benefitted from an ongoing, reciprocal influence. This was exemplified by Modotti contributing photographs to Charlot’s Mexican Folkways magazine, and Charlot posing for Modotti, as seen in the current lot.
