Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving
"[Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving] is centered on a collection of Kahlo’s personal possessions from her lifelong home, La Casa Azul, now the Museo Frida Kahlo in Coyoacán, Mexico. The material was locked away by Kahlo’s husband, Diego Rivera, after her death in 1954. Fifty years later, the staff of the Museo Frida Kahlo opened this time capsule and made an astounding discovery. They uncovered more than twenty-two thousand documents; six thousand photographs; and three hundred of Kahlo’s personal effects, including cosmetics, medical supplies, jewelry, and clothing. The materials provided new insights into Kahlo’s personal life and revealed the complex influences behind her now famous appearance."
