Frida in Baden-Baden
When we were in Milan in February, Vinnie spotted a billboard of Frida Kahlo and shouted, “Look! It’s Frida Kahlo!”
She began talking about Frida breaking her back in a bus accident and painting her pain with nails all over her body.
Vinnie is not the reader Thom is so this outburst was a surprise.
She explained that Frau Hoffmann recently taught her class about Frida.
“Would you like to see her paintings while we’re here?”
We got Vinnie to the Mudec in Milan, but the gift shop was as far as she got. There was a huge line for the exhibition, and our crew wasn’t up for the wait.
I promised her we'd try again.
Ten weeks later, we’re in Baden-Baden the at Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund. It was a lovely ladies’ afternoon out.

It interests me that Livvy is so fascinated by this artist. She's so young to have such strong feelings, but she is obviously reflecting seriously at each picture. Please tell her that I don't like the painting of American industry/manufacturing being villainous either--even if there is truth to the matter!
