About the Item

Frida Kahlo by Nickolas Muray is a 20 x 16 inch platinum print, available in an edition of 50. This photographs features a portrait of Frida Kahlo wearing a shawl over her shoulders. This photograph is signed by Nickolas Muray's Estate and is from the Nickolas Muray Photo Archives. Nickolas Muray (1892–1965) was a Hungarian born artist that worked in New York as a photographer, specializing in portraits of celebrities. His work was often seen in Vanity Fair magazine. Nick’s friendship with the Mexican artist, Miguel Covarrubias, lead to the introduction to Frida Kahlo when Nick visited Mexico. Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo were introduced by Covarubbias and it was in 1931 when Nickolas and Frida’s love affair started. Later, when Frida had a solo exhibition at the renowned Julian Levy gallery in New York, she continued their affair. Most of the portraits that will be exhibited were taken in Nick’s studio during that New York visit.

In 1902, he received his first camera for his sixteenth birthday, a Kodak Bull's-Eye #2, and began taking photographs in parks in Chicago and at his aunt's farm.
