Until 26 June 2005

This exhibition contains 50 photo portraits of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, many of them never seen before on British shores. The legendary artist who died at the still tender age of 47 in 1954 following a lifetime of medical problems, lived and worked for the most part in Mexico City. Her unique style was influenced by her Mexican origins and own personal beliefs that drew on contemporary communist and feminist ideas. This collection photographs portrays her from her early childhood right up until the very end on her deathbed. They include both monochrome and colour snapshots of the artist painting, admiring her own collections, enjoying her garden, and playing with her family and domestic animals as well as more delicate moments such as her frequent hospital stays. Admission to the exhibition is free.
