Everyone recognizes her face. Few artists have captured the public's imagination with the force of Frida Kahlo. Her life and fame are closely linked to San Francisco. She began her career as an artist here in 1930, making her first commissioned portraits, and her reputation blossomed after her death thanks in part to San Francisco–based exhibitions and artistic homages. This major exhibition goes beyond the myth, providing an intimate look at her hauntingly evocative paintings, her personal photo albums and her revolutionary life.
