How

Kindly click on the link  https://www.facebook.com/IMEXGroup/photos/a.10152114357562810.1073741859.110151767809/10152167731612810/?type=1&relevant_count=1 and like.

Why: 

When I lived in Germany in the sixties, people were very supportive to me as a young army wife with two-step sons.  I have never had a chance to thank them for their support.   My sons were 13 and 15 – I was only 22.

Perhaps this wee ripple in the pond will convey my belated  gratitude.  I appreciate your help.

Frida Kahlo

Artrotter's Blog

Emozionante l’incontro con Frida Kahlo e la sua opera in mostra in questi giorni nelle splendide sale delle Scuderie del Quirinale.
L’artista diventata icona della cultura moderna, simbolo universale della cultura messicana, anticipatrice dei fermenti femministi , ha saputo trasformare la sua vicenda umana in un libro per immagini, dando corpo alle proprie passioni, sofferenze, visioni attraverso una straordinaria serie di opere.
Di queste oltre 160 tra dipinti e disegni , provenienti da raccolte pubbliche e private messicane ,americane e europee, sono presenti nell’esposizione romana che è la prima retrospettiva italiana dell’artista.
Cuore della mostra la serie di ritratti: dagli amici al amatissimo marito Diego Ribera al quale Frida dedica molti dipinti.
Bellissimo, per esempio, questo autoritratto , Autoritratto come Tehuana, (o Diego nei miei pensieri)del 1943, in cui l’immagine di Diego è raffigurata in mezzo alla fronte come terzo occhio.
