On January 26, 2019 “Laces and Tears”, the exhibition of the Frida Kahlo replica-paintings opens in Baden-Baden in the Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund.
This is the 6th Frida Kahlo exhibition that the Kunstmuseum has presented and curated in Germany and in the US in the last 10 years.
The theme of this exhibition focuses on Frida love for beauty, elegance and how she used her elaborated dresses, laces, jewels to cover her poor painful body.
The exhibition “Laces and Tears” also presents for the first time two new sections: the first one is :’Love me a little, I adore you” which shows many of Frida Kahlo men and women lovers over the years and their stories, and “The lost ones”: the paintings of Frida Kahlo which have been lost or destroyed, of which there is only a photographic record, mainly in black and white.
The exhibition shows over 260 painting and photographs, furnitures, the reconstruction of the doll house as Frida Kahlo had in her bedroom in the Blue House; visitors should consider a visit length of minimum 2 hours.

The exhibition can be followed by means of a catalogue in 4 languages that reveals the background and secrets behind each painting and allows the visitors to be part of Frida Kahlo’s state of mind and world of laces and tears, of beauty and pain.

The Kunstmuseum is the only institution in the world that received the authorization from Mexico to replicate all the paintings of Frida Kahlo. The replica-paintings are hand painted by master artists, and the only difference with the originals is the label on the back of each painting: “Licensed replica from ©Banco de México Diego Rivera & Frida Kahlo Museums Trust / VG Bild-Kunst, Bonn 2008”.

The exhibition will last from January 26 to May 5th 2019.
