The Photograph Albums

Frida Kahlo—An Intimate Portrait

This exhibition provides rare and moving insight into the personal life of one of the 20th century’s most iconic artists. Through 113 photographs selected from her private albums, this exhibition allows us to see Frida Kahlo (1907–1954) through the eyes of friends, family (including her father, professional photographer Guillermo Kahlo), and other noted photographic artists like Tina Modotti, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, and Nickolas Muray. Like all family albums, these photographs tell a story; they illuminate her turbulent marriage to famed muralist Diego Rivera (1886–1957), commemorate friendships and happy times, and chronicle her pain. The photographs are also evidence of the way Kahlo crafted and refined her world-famous image. The exhibition is organized by Vicente Wolf Associates from Vicente Wolf’s collection.
