A moving portrait of Frida Kahlo straddling the border between the United States and her native Mexico will go on view at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in October. The painting, which is part of the exhibition Paint the Revolution: Mexican Modernism, was created in 1932, while Kahlo was in Detroit with her husband, Diego Rivera. The show, organized in collaboration with the Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, will remain on view through January 2017.
