Naked Frida

The naked essence of Frida Kahlo

So many words have already been said or written about Frida Kahlo, that it would be quite unnecessary to repeat them all over again. Here, we will dwell on telling, through a selection of photographs, documents and artworks, about how her life has always been somewhat “naked” until the end and beyond, because of her temper, but mainly of the incidents that have made her existence so vulnerable and, at the same time, so proud and true, so sincere and engaging.

About her naked pictures, in recent years there was a big playing around with creating fakes, so well made, but certainly recognizable to a sensitive and keen eye. In fact, it seems that the only shots of Frida without veils belong to a 1983 series by Julian Levy, whereby the body of Frida becomes distinguishable from all the photo montages. However, that’s only one evidence of how she is one of the figures whose legend remains inextricably linked to her life and way of being, more than to her work. Of how her sensuality is still a disruptive role model for each generation.
