A new exhibition at the Galliera fashion museum in Paris is exploring the artist's identity through some of the objects stored at her famous "Casa Azul" in Mexico City. Clothes, makeup and personal correspondence give us an insight into a woman who was ahead of her time.

A self-portrait by Mexican artist Frida Kahlo sold at auction on Tuesday for a record-breaking $34.9 million, the highest price ever paid for a Latin American art ever sold at auction. Diego y yo (Diego and I) depicts Kahlo's tumultuous second marriage to Mexican muralist Diego Rivera. Completed in 1949, the painting is Kahlo's final fully-realized bust self-portrait before she died in 1954 at the age of 47.
