NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Botanical Garden is planning a major exhibition on Frida Kahlo (FREE’-duh KAY’-loh) next year that will examine how nature influenced her artwork.

It will also reimagine Kahlo’s garden and studio outside Mexico City, known as Casa Azul (KAH’-suh uh-ZOOL).

“Frida Kahlo’s Garden” will be on view from May 16 to Nov. 1, 2015.

The Garden’s Enid (EE’-nihd) A. Haupt Conservatory will feature lava rock paths lined with flowers and plants native to Mexico. There also will be a scale version of a pyramid at Casa Azul that was created to display pre-Columbian art collected by her husband, muralist Diego Rivera.

A group of rare paintings and works on paper highlighting Kahlo’s use of botanical imagery will be on display in a gallery at the Garden’s library.
