Description

The retrospective Frida Kahlo, beyond appearances, showing at the Palais Galliera from 15 September to 5 March 2023, throws light on the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, a true global icon.

The exhibition explores how this young woman became an artist, overcoming her disability and her condition. More than 200 exceptional pieces from Frida Kahlo's personal collection, kept under wraps for 50 years by her husband Diego Rivera, are presented. The collection is housed in the Casa Azùl, the Kahlo family home where the artist lived for much of her life, and is made up of countless treasures, from her photographs to her famous traditional dresses, jewellery, correspondence, and medical prostheses, all of which nurtured the extraordinary artist that she was and helped shape her world.
