The Drents Museum Assen will present two of the world’s most important Frida Kahlo collections. In collaboration with the Mexico-based Museo Dolores Olmedo and Museo Frida Kahlo, a unique mixture of Kahlo’s art and personal objects (including clothing, painted corsets, and jewellery) will be displayed.
Frida Kahlo is one of the best-known artists in the world. She is most famous for her vibrant self-portraits, feminist activism, and turbulent marriage with Mexican painter Diego Riviera. No wonder her adventurous life story inspired musicians, fashion designers, and movie directors alike.
