I Will Never Forget You...: Main
Frida Kahlo made the self-portrait the cornerstone of her art, and she manipulates her self-image as effectively before the lens as she did in the hours she spent at the canvas. Nickolas Muray's photographic portraits of the artist, including many pioneering, early colour images, have a luminous, painterly quality, described by Diego Rivera as being 'as beautiful as a Piero de la Francesca'. The lush, saturated colours do full justice to the elaborate costumes that were an intrinsic part of Kahlo’s self-image and masked the reality of her physical suffering.Kahlo met Muray in Mexico in 1931 and they began a passionate, if intermittent, affair that was to continue over several years, sustained from a distance by an exchange of paintings, photographs and ardent love letters, a selection of which are included in the book.
