THE LIFE OF FRIDA KAHLO ILLUSTRATED
anta Fe: The exhibition "Mirror, Mirror... Photographs of Frida Kahlo" traces the artist's life in more than 50 images by outstanding photographers including Lola and Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Imogen Cunningham, Carl Van Vechten, and Nickolas Muray. Visitors will follow Frida from a self-possessed adolescent to a passionate wife and lover, an independent artist, fashion icon and object of cult-like reverence. Kahlo learned the power of the medium as a teenager assisting her father, a well known photographer, in the dark room. She used the camera in the hands of photojournalists, friends and lovers, to record her passion for her husband, the great muralist Diego Rivera, to her agonizing physical decline. In the process she defined the image that would be the principle subject of her own art. The photography exhibition originated at Throckmorton Fine Art, New York. For the Santa Fe venue the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art has added a selection of large scale photographs by William Frej conveying the ambiance of the Casa Azul, the Kahlo family home and now the Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico City, and a group of works created in homage to Frida by innovative artists from Santa Fe's Spanish Market.
