Faces of Frida is one of the largest curations on the Mexican artist ever assembled and it's available through the Google Arts and Culture app. Comprising over 800 Frida Kahlo paintings, artefacts, high-resolution images and features, it offers a deep dive into her life, art and legacy. To put the collection together, Google teamed up with a network of 33 museums around the world, including Museo Frida Kahlo, the Smithsonian, the V&A and Centre Pompidou. The result is an incredibly colourful and detailed tour that is free for everyone to enjoy. As long as they have an internet connection.

Editorial features from art historians and experts act as virtual guides, exploring themes like the hidden meanings behind Kahlo's work, her relationship with politics and insights into her private life. Personal letters, possessions, clothing, journals and photographs are available to browse, alongside her most celebrated works and some never-before-seen pieces from private collections, including the View of New York.

Online visitors can also enjoy five Street View tours of places associated with Kahlo, including Casa Azul (or Blue House) where she spent most of her life, as well as an enhanced Street View experience that tours the displays at the Frida Kahlo Museum. And there's no need to crane your neck to examine her work in intricate detail. A magnifying glass tool will help visitors zoom in on features with 360-degree views.

In addition to Kahlo's work, the collection features an original piece of art, created by young American installation artist Alexa Meade in collaboration with Kahlo's great-niece, the photographer Cristina Kahlo. There are also pieces that explore Kahlo's legacy on contemporary music, art and dance, including a feature from the English National Ballet.
