Kahlo's Home Recreated in New York

Mexican artist Frida Kahlo's garden and studio have been recreated at the New York Botanical Garden.
Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life is the first solo New York show dedicated to the artist for 25 years. The exhibition includes original paintings by Kahlo which reflect the use of botanical imagery in her work. Curator Joanna Groarke said,
"We were inspired by Frida Kahlo's art but also by the artistry of her garden in Mexico City. We knew from studying her paintings that she was a careful observer of nature and plants, but we learnt when we studied her more that she was also a very passionate plants person."
