Frida Kahlo: Through the Lens of Nickolas Muray

No start date available - November 20th, 2011

In May 1931 photographer Nickolas Muray (1892-1965) traveled to Mexico on vacation where he met Frida Kahlo, 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. These historical imagesof Kahlo from the collection of the Nickolas Muray archives reveal the work of a master photographer and the passion of an extraordinary love story.
