"Thanks to the recent donation of The Nelleke Nix and Marianne Huber Collection: The Frida Kahlo Papers, NMWA's Library and Research Center houses unpublished letters related to the artist's life and work. This exhibition showcases a selection of heartfelt letters sent between Frida and her mother in the years just before her mother's death."
I received this note from Heather Slania, NMWA’s Director of the Library and Research Center, with more details about the exhibit: "There are seven letters on view - thought there are more than 360 letters in the collection between Frida Kahlo and her relatives, her lovers, and her art associates. Of those, there are almost 60 letters between Frida Kahlo and her mother, 53 of them from Frida Kahlo. Research on this collection of letters is only done using the scans now, so this is a rare opportunity to see the original artifacts." Thanks for the info Heather!
