Photographs of the Mexican-born artist Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) will be on exhibit from February 2 to March 30, 2008 in the Brock J. Vinton Galleries, Delaware Art Museum in Wilmington, Delaware.
The photos were all taken from 1937 to 1941 by Hungarian-born commercial photographer Nickolas Muray who, even then, already experimented with color photography.
Frida Kahlo herself was a colorful figure known for her deeply personal and richly colored paintings. Murayâ€™s photographs of Kahlo celebrate her deep interest in her Mexican heritage, her life, and the people significant to her. The Delaware exhibit is part of a 2 Â½-year tour around the United States.
