The relatives of the Mexican painter claim that the Frida Kahlo Corporation has breached the terms of their contract….
According to El Universal, in January 2005, Isolda Pinedo Kahlo, daughter of Cristina Kahlo, sister of the painter, entered into an agreement with the Frida Kahlo Corporation (F.K.Co.), based in Miami, Florida.
The Frida Kahlo brand is registered before the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI) and it seems the brand itself has become ubiquitous – nail polish, books, bags, shoes, shirts and more. The only detail is that Mara Romeo and Mara de Anda, daughter and grand-daughter, respectively, of Isola Pinedo and thus the current holders of the rights to the brand, claim they had no knowledge of the use F.K.Co is giving to both the image and the name, of their famous relative.
“They never tell us what they’re doing, how they’re doing it, why or with whom. Since 2009 we know nothing and they keep requesting licenses; they were supposed to share the knowledge so we could work together,” says Mara de Anda.
