Frida Kahlo exhibit opens @ San Francisco’s de Young Museum

The Frida Kahlo exhibition has re-opened, and extended through May 2nd!

The exhibition Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving is at the de Young Museum.

  • The exhibit introduces her family and her life.
  • See below amazing videos and images.

At the time of Frida Kahlo’s death in 1954, a treasure trove of the artist’s highly personal items—including jewelry, clothing, and prosthetics—were locked away. 50 years later, these belongings were unsealed—now they’re on view for the first time on the West Coast. Discover what these objects reveal about their now iconic owner in Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving.

Museum-goers will be able to see over a hundred of Frida Kahlo’s personal belongings, as well as photographs in her younger days.

Frida blended different styles to make her own, what is now an iconic look.

The exhibit features a trove of possessions that had been locked up for 50 years, her jewelry, and her vibrant ensembles.

There are a number of remarkable portraits that span her artistic career, including the double portrait of Frida and Diego Rivera.

A number of her lesser know works are also on view, like some amazing still lifes she painted, inspired by her house.
