Another batch of Frida Kahlo works appears in Mexico, according to the Independent:
A journalist claims she was offered the “newly discovered” works while researching a story about the original batch of alleged fakes. “In a shop in the Plaza del Angel antiques market there is a trunk painted by Rivera and Kahlo in which there are hundreds of pieces: photographs, a dress, more painted boxes, a Virgin of Guadalupe with a signed Kahlo self-portrait behind. The dealer wants three million pesos (less than £200,000) for it,” Galia Garcia Palafox wrote in a Columbian magazine.
She then asked the dealer where the works had come from. “The majority were works Frida gave her photographer and that I have kept for years,” was the reply.
Ms Garcia Palafox said: “The Kahlo pieces are different than the other ones [involved in the court case]. I was offered them by an antiquarian who had them in his antique shop.”
