ArtLitfond will present the works of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera at Winzavod

18+
As part of the pre-auction exhibition of contemporary art on June 22 and 23, ArtLitfond will present the work of Frida Kahlo's "Self-Portrait with a Parrot", created by the artist in the 1940s, in his space at the Winzavod. The drawing comes from a private collection and has a certificate of authenticity from the National University of Mexico.

Another work at the exhibition belongs to one of the most famous Mexican artists and the husband of Frida Calo Diego Rivera. His drawing "A man carrying a basket", also originating from a private collection, has a certificate of authenticity from the artist's son. Their tumultuous life together became a legend for the whole world. Many years later, Freda said: "There were two accidents in my life: one - when the bus crashed into a tram, the other is Diego."

In the 1940s, Frida was already an artist all over the world, and her works appear on several notable exhibitions. One of the records of the cost of Frida Kahlo's paintings was her self-portrait, sold in 2006 at an auction for 5.6 million US dollars. A record price for the work of Rivera was reached at one of the auctions in 2016, when his painting "The Rivals" was purchased for almost $ 10 million.

Collectors can buy works by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera even earlier - at the auction of the Litfund, which will take place on June 27 in Nizhny Kislovsky Lane.
