Organized in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the artist's birth, Frida Kahlo is the first major Kahlo exhibition in the United States in nearly
fifteen years (February 20- May 18).
It presents over forty of the artist's most important
self-portraits, still lifes, and portraits from the beginning of her
career in 1926 until her death in 1954. Rendered in vivid colors and
realistic detail, Kahlo's jewel-like paintings are filled with complex
symbolism, often relating to specific incidents in her life. In her
iconic self-portraits the artist continually reinvented herself.
