This exhibition dedicated to Mexican artist Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) is likely to be among the biggest shows in Rome this year.
Arguably the world's most famous female artist of the first half of the 20th century, and the greatest exponent of Latin American art, Kahlo's life was marked by colour but marred by tragedy, both of which she incorporated into her work.
Regarded as a forerunner of the feminist movement, Kahlo was linked to influential men such as Leon Trotsky and André Breton, later marrying revolutionary artist Diego Rivera.
This major exhibition explores her paintings as well as her relationship with the artistic movements of the time, from Mexican Modernism to international Surrealism.
The exhibition comprises some of her most celebrated works, on loan from Mexico, Europe and the US, and also includes a selection of photographic portraits of the artist.
