Frida Kahlo Centenary

frida doll.JPGIn honor of the Mexican artist’s 100th birthday, the home-turned-museum of Frida Kahlo and husband Diego Rivera unveils a collection of photos, drawings and other personal items today. Read yesterday’s Washington Post story here. Find more articles on Kahlo’s birthday celebration here, and here, and here.

Since a portion of the items—found in a trunk and unused bathroom three years ago—includes puppets and a puppet theater, we found it fitting to share an image of Anne’s Frida doll that lives at her desk. And check out Anne and Sarah’s mesh tributes to the tortured artist, which they picked up in Albuquerque while attending the International Association of Pastel Societies convention in May.
