I’ve searched for hummingbirds around the world – now I’m stopping my long-haul flying to help save them

Frida Kahlo painted herself with the tiny corpse of one hung around her neck. Ian Fleming opened the James Bond story For Your Eyes Only with a fieldguide-worthy account of the tiny creature in Jamaica. They captivated Charles Dickens (who called them “stars of the morning”) and Queen Victoria (“It is impossible to imagine anything so lovely… their variety, and the extraordinary brilliancy of their colours”).

Boston’s flagship museums and art galleries have been open for months. But university-affiliated art venues, which once played a mammoth role in the region’s cultural scene, are taking their sweet time.

The life and lasting impact of Frida Kahlo, an LGBTQ+ art icon

“Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?” – Frida Kahlo (1907-1954). The Spanish word ‘Duende’ was one that was not lost on Frida Kahlo. The term was described by Federico Garcia Lorca, the poet and perhaps purely platonic love interest of Salvador Dalí, as exalted emotion unearthed from within.

Guerrilla Girls interview: still bananas for equality in the art world

If Zoom wasn’t already weird enough, now I’m looking at myself talking to a pair of gorillas. Gorillas and guerrillas, in fact - Käthe Kollwitz and Frida Kahlo (not their real names) are two of the founding members of the Guerrilla Girls, the anonymous American feminist art collective (their exact number is a secret) which since the mid-Eighties has used facts, figures and a fat dose of humour to fight against white male bias in the art world.

Frida Kahlo exhibit opens at the College of DuPage, and here's what not to miss

Back in 1978, when the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago held a major solo exhibition of Frida Kahlo's work, one newspaper critic wrote a dismissive review of the Mexican artist. Alan Artner concluded Kahlo's art "will satisfy none but the most caterwauling feminist."
