In 1931 photographer Nickolas Muray (1892-1965) traveled to Mexico on vacation where he met Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), a woman he would never forget. The two started a romance that continued on and off for the next ten years and a friendship that lasted until the end of their lives. The Hungarian born Muray was an acclaimed artist in his own right, having pioneered color portrait photography.
Frida Kahlo: Through the Lens of Nickolas Muray contains photographic portraits taken by Muray of Frida Kahlo between 1937 and 1946. Muray photographed Frida more than any of his other subjects and his portraits of her are among the most iconic images of the artist. Also on display are copies of correspondence between Muray and Frida.
This exhibition is organized by the Nickolas Muray Archives and is circulated through GuestCurator Traveling Exhibitions.
