MEXICO CITY (AP) — With her unibrow, braided updo, colorful clothing and mustache, the late Mexican artist Frida Kahlo has become an idiosyncratic cult figure in the United States.
Kahlo has an equally passionate following in her native Mexico City. Her face is plastered on everything from handbags and jewelry to wall hangings and aprons. Her husband, the late muralist Diego Rivera, was better known during their lifetimes but she's eclipsed him in fame since their deaths in the 1950s.

NEW YORK (AP) — A rediscovered painting by Frida Kahlo is going to auction this month in New York.
The 1929 portrait, called "Niña con collar" or "Girl with necklace," will be part of Sotheby's Latin America: Modern Art sale on Nov. 22. Its pre-sale estimate is $1.5 million to $2 million.
Kahlo's husband, artist Diego Rivera, gave the work to her personal assistant in 1955, the year after she died.
Until it surfaced over the summer, the only record of the portrait had been a black-and-white photo.

The large exhibit will debut in Arizona on Oct. 10 at the Tucson Botanical Gardens. It hasn't traveled to any other gardens and likely will not.
