  • Fanny Rabel, born Fanny Rabinovich,was a Polish-born Mexican artist who is considered to be the first modern female muralist and one of the youngest associated with the Mexican muralism of the early to mid 20th century. She and her family arrived to Mexico in 1938 from Europe and she studied art at the Escuela Nacional de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado "La Esmeralda", where she met and became friends with Frida Kahlo. She became the only female member of “Los Fridos” a group of students under Kahlo’s tutelage. She also worked as an assistant and apprentice to Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros, painting a number of murals of her own during her career. The most important of this is Ronda en el tiempo at the Museo Nacional de Antropología in Mexico City. She also created canvases and other works, with children often featured in her work and one the first of her generation to work with ecological themes in a series of works begun in 1979.
