Description:
Ransom Center curator discusses Kahlo self-portrait
Associate Curator of Art Peter Mears discusses Frida Kahlo's "Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird," part of the Ransom Center's collection and on display on the first floor through Jan. 8. View a live webcast of this talk at http://www.hrc.utexas.edu/webcast.

Since 1990 the painting has been on almost continuous loan, featured in exhibitions in more than 25 museums in the United States as well as Australia, Canada, France and Spain.

Mears discusses how the Ransom Center acquired "Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird" (1940) and a small but important collection of modern Mexican art from New York City celebrity photographer and collector Nickolas Muray, who was also Kahlo's lover. Mears will also provide an overview of this iconic painting's worldly travels, which serve as a cultural barometer reflecting the trends, issues and cross-cultural themes prevalent in the art world over the past two decades.
