Largest Collection of Frida Kahlo Works and Artefacts Is Now Available Online

The many dimensions of Frida Kahlo and her life are now on display thanks to the Google Art and Culture online exhibition “Faces of Frida”. Google has collaborated with 33 partner museums, as well as a worldwide network of experts and collectors, in order to put the art diva’s most significant works together in the one place. The collection not only details Frida’s artwork, but also provides the viewers with a snapshot of her personal life, health and legacy.

The collection delves deep into Frida’s personality, exploring her relationship with her body, her lovers, politics and, of course, her creativity. Google has taken advantage of their high-tech excellence and created virtual tours that transport the viewer to important places in Frida’s life. Google’s art camera was used to capture 20 high-resolution photos of previously undigitized works that can be seen online for the first time.
