Frida Kahlo's suitcases

Saturday, 14 November 2009

I just received this book in the post and am really enjoying looking through it. The book is about some chests and boxes which were found packed full of paintings, clothing, a diary, drawings etc and some airmail letters inscribed with the words "personal archive of Frida K. and personal archive of my private life".

There have been rumours that the objects are fakes, but fake or not it is certainly a beautiful book full of photographs of all different things be it recipes, dolls, receipts. Can you imagine how exciting it must have been to find all this?
