    Mexican artist Frida Kahlo (1907–1954), wrote, "They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn't. I never painted dreams, I painted my own reality."

    This display at the de Young Museum in San Francisco examines how disability, gender, politics and ethnicity shaped her work. On exhibit are items shown in the United States for the first time from her lifelong home La Casa Azul (now Museo Frida Kahlo) in Mexico City. Included are many personal items, photographs, paintings and drawings. In her short lifetime, she endured tremendous physical pain, yet produced a unique body of work, married Diego Rivero, traveled abroad including time spent in San Francisco, and was active in the communist party.

    Funded in part by the Senior Mobility Initiative of the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund.
