BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — For the first time ever, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston will hold an exhibition on Mexican painter Frida Kahlo.
Kahlo’s work was mostly inspired by the objects she collected and their political significance after the Mexican Revolution, which ended in 1917.
According to the MFA, her iconic paintings focus on the artist's lasting engagement with Mexican Folk Art, classified as arte popular.
Eight of her paintings on loan from other museums will be presented with other arte popular pieces from February 27 through June 16.
Layla Bermeo, Assistant Curator of American Paintings for the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, spoke with WBZ NewsRadio’s Chris Fama on this rare exhibit. Hear the interview below:
