Since you can’t go traipsing around your favourite museums right now, we’ve done some digging and found an incredible online art exhibition dedicated to everyone’s favourite monobrowed modern art master: Frida Kahlo. For this awesome exhibition, Google Arts and Culture have brought together 33 museums and art centres from around the world to share their Kahlo works and archives, and named the whole shebang ‘Faces of Frida’.
The various art establishments have contributed 800 works by the Mexican artist, but also lots of biographical elements (personal objects, letters), journal extracts and historical details.
You’ll be able to learn all about Frida’s early life, her love of nature, the hidden stories behind her paintings and all the mythical backstories to her works. We’ve had a good ‘walk’ through the show, and can assure you the platform totally fulfils its promises: it takes you on a journey through the real and surreal, the intimacy, the Christian iconography, the pre-Colombian heritage and all the painful, beautiful themes of Frida Kahlo’s art. Seriously, it’s good.
