About

Over the years, Kahlo’s influence has been both an entry point into painting and an iconic reminder of Mexican culture, providing artists worldwide with inspiration culled from Kahlo’s art, persona, and iconography. Her compelling portraits are a mirror offering both self-reflection and contemporary exploitation.
