The most beautiful, colorful and iconic portraits you've ever seen of Frida Kahlo were likely taken by her on and off lover and lifetime friend Nickolas Muray. From the legendary photo of Kahlo majestically sitting in front of a green and white floral backdrop (which later graced the cover of Vogue Paris and México) to the image of her staring into our souls with a Mona Lisa-esque smile while a bright magenta rebozo drapes her shoulders. These timeless portraits and more are works by Muray who not only was Kahlo’s confidant but also an acclaimed color portrait pioneer of his time. Observe about 50 of Muray's intimate photographs of the beloved Mexican artist.
