Photos of Frida Kahlo

Frida with Olmeca Figurine, Coyoacán; photo Nickolas Muray (1939)Here's a beautifully composed photo of the Mexican artist Frida Kahl, the lady with the eyebrows who made a career out of self-portraiture. As a photographic portrait it outshines the portraitist. This is one of nearly 50 photos of Frida which Muray took between 1937 and 1941. Find them in the Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington, from 2 February to 30 March: Frida Kahlo: Through the Lens of Nickolas Muray. Also note that the Delaware collection of Pre-Raphaelite paintings has returned from its international tour.
