Frida Kahlo: Portraits of an Icon

Just five days before it closes I found out about the San Jose Museum of Art exhibition Frida Kahlo: Portraits of an Icon. Checking it out this weekend!
Saturday, October 11, 2008 through Sunday, March 22, 2009
Shedding light on the life and art of Frida Kahlo (1907 – 1954), this exhibition features approximately fifty photographic portraits of the legendary Mexican artist. Drawn from the collection of Spencer Throckmorton, a specialist in Latin American photography, the exhibition includes works by several of the most renowned photographers of the twentieth century: Manuel Alvarez Bravo and Nickolas Muray.
