Posted by on Apr 27, 2015 in Collections, Exhibitions, Frida Kahlo, History, News | 0 comments

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. Many of the letters include keepsakes inserted by Kahlo, among them drawings, photographs, pressed flowers and other mementos. The successful bidder was a private collector in New York, who is also an artist and a great admirer of Frida Kahlo. These unpublished letters, dating from 1946 through 1949 and comprising more than 100 pages in Spanish, were secreted away and cherished by Bartoli until his death in 1995. They remained in the possession of Bartoli’s family, who made the decision to offer the letters at auction, 20 years after his death. Frida Kahlo met José Bartoli...

El Museo Casa Azul presentará una exposición de 300 piezas de la indumentaria de la artista. México • Ayer y hoy, Frida Kahlo ha marcado tendencia en la moda. Esta frase no es cliché: tiene sustento en una publicación del New York Times que revela que Rosamond Bernier, una de las mujeres más reconocidas en el mundo de la alta costura, era amiga de Diego Rivera y Frida Kahlo. Otro documento que avala esa afirmación es una entrevista realizada por la revista Vogue en octubre de 1937 a la esposa de Rivera, quien por su peculiar manera de vestir, rompió con los cánones de aquella época. Tales sucesos inspiraron al Museo Casa Azul a concebir la exposición Las apariencias engañan: los vestidos de Frida Kahlo, integrada por fotografías, joyería, zapatos y 40 vestidos de la artista entre las 300...

Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera at the Bowes Museum

An odd couple take over the former home of another odd couple. No wonder Frida Kahlo’s winking. The Guardian Northerner‘s arts ace Alan Sykes explains Frida Kahlo. Some character. If you haven’t already read Barbara Kingsolver’s ‘The Lacuna’, do. It’s a warmly imaginative account of the curious pair. Photograph: Lucienne Bloch Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera made a pretty odd couple – Rivera the much older, much travelled, much married friend of Modigliani and Picasso, Kahlo the Hungarian-Jewish-Spanish-Mexican surrealist painter from the Casa Azul. The Bowes Museum‘s founders John and Josephine Bowes weren’t exactly conventional either – he the race horse-owning illegitimate heir to 43,200 acres and a large chunk of the Durham coalfield, she a grande horizontale actress turned obsessive collector. According to the Bowes’ head of exhibitions, Vivien Vallack, the museum’s visitors are interested in photography exhibitions...

Doc solves mystery of Frida Kahlo’s infertility

Posted by on Apr 22, 2012 in Frida Kahlo, News | 0 comments

When Dr. Fernando Antelo looks at “The Broken Column,” one of many self-portraits depicting artist Frida Kahlo’s chronic pain and health problems, he feels like he’s having a conversation with a colleague as well as a patient. The piece, painted shortly after Kahlo underwent spinal surgery at around age 37, shows the artist, who had taken pre-med courses in high school, encased in a body brace. The flesh down the middle of her neck, chest and abdomen is missing, exposing a broken column where her spine should be. Nails pierce her face and body as tears stream down her cheeks. “I see her as a patient wanting to tell me about her symptoms, and at the same time I see her advanced knowledge, her ability to tell me about it as another physician would,” Antelo says. “Seeing that painting...
