Salomon Grimberg, I Will Never Forget You. . .Frida Kahlo to Nickolas Muray (Munich, 2004), pl. 13
"Nickolas Muray, who settled in New York, became known for his portraits of notable artists and celebrities, his intense color carbro advertising photography, as well as his Olympic fencing career. This is perhaps his most renowned portrait, Frida Kahlo with the red rebozo scarf. Muray created several memorable portraits of Frida during their friendship and romantic liaison. 

PDNB Gallery has represented Earlie Hudnall, Jr. and the Estate of Nickolas Muray since the 1990s. They both represent two diverse worlds that connect with Latin American and African American art collectors throughout the past 25 year history of the gallery." – Missy Finger
