Good news for fans of Frida Kahlo: the visionary Mexican artist’s personal possessions have been loaned to London’s V&A after being discovered at her home, La Casa Azul, fifty years after they were locked away by her husband (painter Diego Riviera) following her death in 1954. ‘Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up’ promises an unprecedented insight into the enigmatic artist, whose outfits, hairstyles and outward appearance were an intrinsic part of her artistic identity. The exhibits should dazzle: there are technicolour skirts with flounces, a red Revlon lipstick, corsets that Kahlo hand-painted herself – even her prosthetic leg ( laced into a dragon-adorned red boot) and trusty eyebrow pencil are on display. Interiors fiends should check out the recreation of La Caza Azul, intriguing in all its objet- strewn domesticity (16 June–4 November; vam.ac.uk). MORE COLOUR To chime with RHS Chelsea Flower Show, there will be Mexican plants throughout Belgravia between 19–26 May. Plus, Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up, a biography by V&A curator Claire Wilcox, juxtaposing the artist’s paintings and possessions, is out on 8 May (£30, V&A Publishing).
