Though a widely-held belief, a new book has come out that reveals the father of painter Frida Kahlo wasn’t Jewish after all.
A review in the JPost reveals that photographer Guillermo Kahlo came from a long line of German Protestants, which would have been considered unpopular and embarrassing in bohemian circles in the 1940’s. In a rare reversal of celebrities denying their heritage, “Frida herself was probably the source of the claims to her Jewish connection.”
No se cambia nada, yo. The mujer stood up for what was just, advocated workers’ rights and kicked serious canvas ass. If she wanted to believe herself Jewish, s’ok by me.
