Until 31st August 2014, the rebel Frida Kahlo, a symbol of the avant-garde and artistic exuberance of Mexican culture of the 20th century, will be in Rome with a magnificent exhibition.

At the Scuderie del Quirinale  you will be able to retrace the life and works of the famous Mexican artist. Works are from public and private collections coming directly from Europe, Mexico and the United States.

Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderón claimed to have been born in 1910, the year in which the Mexican Revolution began, but in actual fact she was born in 1907. Her paintings are current and contemporary also at our days. Works reflect her life story, marked as it was by the terrible accident that befell her at the age of seventeen. Her art is fused with the history and spirit of her contemporary world, reflecting the social and cultural changes.

Without a doubt Frida is an undisputed icon of Mexican culture, which we find in her vivid and intense colors, in her ethnic ornaments and clothing folk.
