On 16 May, the New York Botanical Garden will open an exhibition of the work of Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), which will become the first exhibition of the work of Mexican painter in this city for over a decade.

The exhibition will be open to the public until November 1, will focus exclusively on the intense interest of Kahlo by the world of plants, and will include a recreation of both the garden and the study that had the artist in his house Mexico City.

"Frida Kahlo: art, garden, life" exhibit 12 original works that highlight the relationship the artist had with nature in Mexico. Will be curated by the art historian and specialist in Mexican art Adriana Zavala.

Gregory Long, director and president of the New York Botanical Garden, said the show will be a unique opportunity for the public to know the work of Kahlo and artistic atmosphere of the painter.
