Last weekend we visited the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, specifically to see the Gender Bending Fashion exhibit. We also visited the Frida Kahlo and Arte Popular exhibit which is at the MFA until June 19, 2019. The Gender Bending Fashion exhibit, which I will post pictures from later in the week, ends on August 25, 2019.
Here are a number of Frida Kahlo‘s paintings the exhibit displayed such as Two Women (Salvadora and Herminia) – 1928:
Self-Portrait with Hummingbird and Thorn Necklace – 1940
Still Life with Parrot and Fruit – 1951
Girl with Death Mask (She Plays Alone) – 1938
The Suicide of Dorothy Hale – 1939
The exhibit displayed works of her contemporaries as well such as this painting by María Izquierdo: Cupboard – 1947
Gabriel Fernández Ledesma: Girl – 1925
There were personal items of Frida Kahlo’s as well as articles of clothing that matched those she wore:

Finally, on the way out I came across this Picasso:

I alternated f-stops between f/1.8 and f/5.6. In general, f/3.5 to f/4 is probably ideal considering the circumstances of limited time in front of each work of art and lighting conditions.
