To Julien Levy who arranged together with André Breton for Kahlo's first solo exhibition at the Julien Levy Gallery in New York in 1938. Important letter relative to her famous and celebrated self-portrait Autoretrato con monos (“Frida and the Four Monkeys”).
Frida Kahlo recommends her friend and artist Florence Arquin. “She is not only one of my best friends but also a very good painter. She had an exhibition of her work in Mexico, recently with a great success (...) She is taking with her – very kindly – one of my paintings to deliver it from Chicago to you: Frida and the four monkeys. I hope you will like it and fi nd it sellable. I couldn’t send you more because unfortunately, as soon as I fi nish a painting I must sell it to get the dough. But little by little I will send you as many as I can, to be able once to have the show I promised you”. She signs “Frida the three moons” and adds at the end: “I will send you some drawings I made which Florence and Diego found interesting.” - Florence Arquin, artist and photographer, became a friend to the Riveras and eventually wrote a book about Rivera’s early experience as an artist in Europe. Frida’s seems to have had a very open relation with Julien Levy and doesn’t hesitate to let him know about her continual interest in Muriel.
