Did you know that artist Nahui Olin’s real name was Carmen Mondragón? Dr. Atl, who painted this portrait on view in “México 1900-1950” and was her lover, named her “Nahui Olin” which is an Aztec renewal meaning “four movement” and the symbol for earthquakes. Based on his nickname for her, what do you think their relationship was like? #VivaDMA
