A group of love letters written by Mexican artist Frida Kahlo sold for $137,000 at Doyle New York on April 15, 2015. The 25 letters were written by Frida Kahlo to Jose Bartoli, a Catalán émigré artist whom she met in New York.

Rarely, however, have their paintings been considered in relation to each another, largely due to the view that they worked in very different styles and with separate intentions. In celebration of the opening of Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics, and Painting, Guest Curator Elliott H. King will present on the artistic relationship these artists shared during their twenty-five years together as a married couple. Although their approaches to painting differed, both were influenced early on by traditional European painting; both caught the attention of the international avant-garde; and both were passionately committed to Mexico’s indigenous people, traditions, and post-revolutionary values. Further, and perhaps most importantly, each steadfastly supported the other’s art, even amidst highly publicized...
