Portraits of artist Frida Kahlo on display at Fresno Art Museum

Fresno - A new exhibit at the Fresno Art Museum will feature pictures of famous Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.
 
"Frida Kahlo: Through The Lens of Nickolas Muray" opens Friday, January 22nd at 6 p.m.
 
It features a collection of over 50 photographs taken by Muray of Kahlo between 1937 and 1946. Muray was a pioneer of color photography who was known for taking portraits of celebrities. His photos of Kahlo made their way into popular culture. 
 
"It was through the eyes of someone who was enamored with her and in love with her and so he tries to capture some of her best features and her personality as well," Curator Kristina Hornback said. 
 
The exhibit also features several love letters between the two during their 10 year romantic relationship. Also on display, several reproductions of Frida's paintings. 
 
"Frida is so iconic and captures everyone's hearts so it will bring in people who wouldn't ordinarily come to the museum and of course while they're here they get to see all of the other wonderful artists," Hornback said.
