Frida Kahlo


Available in English and Spanish, this website about the legendary Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo was published to accompany an exhibition, which was held at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) from 14 June to 28 September, 2008 to celebrate the centenary of the artist's birth. The website highlights "the artist's extraordinary life and work through video commentary by artists and art historians, as well as zoom-enabled images of Kahlo and husband Diego Rivera at their home, Casa Azul." Sections include the faces of Frida; Kahlo's wedding portrait; Kahlo's experience in the U.S.; was Kahlo a surrealist?; and Kahlo's artistic legacy.
