A painting by Frida Kahlo set a new auction record for the Mexican painter when it sold for $8 million at Christie’s. Kahlo’s “Two Nudes in the Forest(The Land Itself),” depicts two nudes in a dreamlike setting. The painting was estimated to bring in $8 million to $12 million. The previous record for Kahlo was $5.6 million.

The small 1939 canvas was a gift for Kahlo’s friend, film star Dolores del Rio. Que orgullo siento por la pintora Mexicana alcanzar niveles tan altos, pero desgraciadamente ella no verá ningún centavo.
