ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) - Russia’s first major exhibition dedicated to Mexican surrealist painter Frida Kahlo has opened in a St. Petersburg museum.

The exhibition that opened Tuesday in the Faberge Museum features three dozen works by Kahlo, famous for her poignant self-portraits.

The paintings come from various collections in Mexico, and officials said it took four separate planes to transport them to Russia because of safety precautions.

The organizers said the exhibition spans the entire Kahlo’s career and includes some of her most iconic paintings.
