(Kizette had married a man named Harold Foxhall, who was then chief geologist for the Dow Chemical Company; they had two daughters.) There she began her difficult and disagreeable later years. Kizette served as Tamara's business manager, social secretary, and factotum, and suffered under her mother's controlling domination and petulant behavior. Tamara complained that not only were the paints and other artists' materials now inferior to the "old days" but that people in the 1970s lacked the special qualities and "breeding" that inspired her art. The artistry and craftsmanship of her glory days were unrecoverable. In 1978 Tamara moved to Cuernavaca, Mexico, to live among an aging international set and some of the younger aristocrats. After Kizette's husband died of cancer, she attended her mother for three months until Tamara died in her sleep on March 18, 1980. Her ashes were scattered over the volcano Popocatepetl on 27 March 1980 by her Mexican friend Victor Manuel Contreras and her daughter Kizette.

Mexico

'''Mexico''' ( it is the eleventh most populous (List of countries by population) and the most populous Spanish-speaking (Hispanophone#Hispanosphere) country in the world and the second most populous country in Latin America. Mexico is a federation comprising thirty-one states (Administrative divisions of Mexico) and a Federal District (Mexico City), its capital and largest city (List of cities in Mexico#Largest cities).

In pre-Columbian Mexico many cultures matured into advanced civilizations such as the Olmec, the Toltec, the Teotihuacan, the Zapotec (Zapotec civilization), the Maya (Maya civilization) and the Aztec before first contact with Europeans. In 1521, the Spanish Empire conquered and colonized (Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire) the territory from its base in Mexico-Tenochtitlan, which was administered as the Viceroyalty of New Spain. This territory would eventually become Mexico following recognition of the colony's independence (Mexican War of Independence) in 1821. The post-independence period was characterized by economic instability (Economic history of Mexico#Independence), the Mexican-American War that led to the territorial cession (Territorial evolution of Mexico) to the United States, the Pastry War, the Franco-Mexican War, a civil war (Reform War), two empires (Emperor of Mexico) and a domestic dictatorship (List of Presidents of Mexico#Porfiriato). The latter led to the Mexican Revolution in 1910, which culminated with the promulgation of the 1917 Constitution (Constitution of Mexico) and the emergence of the country's current political system (Politics of Mexico). In March 1938, through the Mexican oil expropriation private U.S. (United States) and Anglo (United Kingdom)-Dutch (Netherlands) oil companies were nationalized to create the state-owned Pemex oil company.

Mexico has one of the world's largest economies, it is the tenth largest oil producer in the world, the largest silver producer in the world and is considered both a regional power and middle power. Mexico has membership in prominent institutions such as the UN, the WTO, the G20 and the Uniting for Consensus.
