It is difficult to sum up Tina Modottis rich and complex life into a few sentences, but surely she was one of the artists who most openly connected their artistic work with their communist beliefs. Her life and death mirrors the being thrown around that many communists of her time experienced, not only between the locations that became stations of her life (Mexico, Spain, Soviet Union, Mexico) but also the large spread that the communist idea spans between Anarchism and Stalinism.
