Unseen photos of Frida Kahlo by her lover to be auctioned


NEW YORK (AP) — Photographs of Mexican artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera by Nickolas Muray are among several going on sale this week in New York.

Many of the images by the renowned Hungarian-born American photographer have never been seen before. They date from around 1925 to 1946.

Muray had a decade-long affair with Kahlo after meeting her in 1931.

The works will be auctioned Friday as part of Sotheby’s “Photographs” sale. Each will have a starting price of $15,000.

The auction house says the anonymous consigner originally bought the works from the photographer’s estate.
