Frida Kahlo is known for her self portraits. The San Jose Museum of Art is giving us the rare chance of seeing other views of her, through the eyes of renowned photographers in about fifty images. Frida Kahlo – Portraits of an Icon shows the artist carefully constructed self image, but also more private moments – in her bedroom, hospital room, studio, and garden.
