A portrait of Frida holding an Olmeca Figurine in Coyoacán, Mexico, taken by Nickolas Muray in 1939. She is standing in front of a turquoise painted wall, looking at the figurine, with bright pink flowers in her braided hair.

















This past Saturday was the opening of
FRIDA KAHLO: Art, Garden, Life, an exhibition at the New York Botanical Gardens that focuses on Kahlo's interest in and engagement with nature and the botanical world. More than a dozen of her pieces will be on display until November 1st along with a recreation of her home, garden and studio at Casa Azul (now the Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico).

Definitely a must-see this Summer!
