10 June 2023 | 05 November 2023


California Center for the Arts, Escondido Museum, presents this touring exhibit of more than 100 photographs of Frida by her friend, mentor and sometimes lover, Nickolas Muray.

In May 1931, photographer Nickolas Muray traveled to Mexico on vacation where he met Frida Kahlo, a woman he would never forget. The two started a romance that continued on and off for the next ten years and a friendship that lasted until her death in 1954. Approximately fifty photographic portraits taken by Muray of Kahlo comprise this exhibition.

The photographs, dating from 1937 to 1946 explore Muray’s unique perspective as Kahlo’s friend, lover, and confidant. Muray’s photographs bring to light Kahlo’s deep interest in her Mexican heritage, her life and the people significant to her with whom shared a close friendship with.
