Frida Kahlo’s artistic development from the New Objectivity (Neue Sachlichkeit), through Mexican Estridentism to Surrealism and her very own blend of Realism is comprehensively presented. Her art is supplemented by a collection of photographs belonging to her family and friends which offer unusual insights into her time. Responsibility for this part of the exhibition rests with Frida Kahlo’s great niece, the photographer Cristina Kahlo.
