One Word Sunday

Photo taken at the Toronto Textile Museum in 2015.

In May 1931 photographer Nickolas Muray (1892-1965) traveled to Mexico on vacation where he met Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), a woman he would never forget. The two started a romance that continued on and off for the next ten years and a friendship that lasted until her death in 1954. Approximately forty photographic portraits taken by Muray of Kahlo comprise the exhibition. The photographs, dating from 1937 to 1946, explore Muray’s unique perspective; as Kahlo’s friend, lover and confidant, Muray’s photographs bring to light Kahlo’s deep interest in her Mexican heritage, her life and the people with whom she shared a close friendship.


  1. How wonderful...a woman of great passions and this show must give a different viewpoint of them. So glad you shared it.

  2. A great pose. She was an infinitely complicated woman.

  3. Thanks for this jackie. Must be a fascinating exhibition.
