The work of Frida Kahlo

This month marks the centenary of the birth of the remarkable Mexican painter Frida Kahlo.
I first learned about Kahlo through the excellent film “Frida” [my review here] but, since then, I’ve seen several exhibitions of her striking – and often disturbing – work, notably an international exhibition in 2005 in London which brought together 87 works [my review here].
The 100th birthday of Frida Kahlo is being honoured with the largest-ever exhibit of her paintings at the Museum of the Fine Arts Palace in Mexico. Works are on loan from Detroit, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Nayoga, Japan.The exhibit includes one-third of her artistic production, as well as manuscripts and letters that have not been previously displayed.
I wish that I could have visited the exhibition, but I’ve never been to Mexico.
