A work by famous Mexican painter Frida Kahlo will be part of the Israel Museum's Family Traces exhibition, which will open later this month in Jerusalem. This is the first time that any of Kahlo's paintings have been on display in Israel. My Grandparents, My Parents and I (1936), on loan from New York's Museum of Modern Art, is one of 70 pieces of art in the new exhibit. It consists of portraits of Kahlo's parents and grandparents interposed on the backdrop of her childhood home. The paintings trace family life from the wedding to death, arranged by subject. Others artists represented include Pablo Picasso, Nicholas Nixon, Michael Gross, Moshe Gershoni and Adi Nes.
