Frida Kahlo Paintings In San Diego: Do Audiences Know They're Copies?

Yet the press release announcing the exhibit says, “Presented by Global Entertainment Properties 1, LLC, (GEP1) the exhibition features 123 replicas of her known paintings in original size and original materials, and hand-painted in the same style as Kahlo painted them. These replicas, owned by GEP1, are painted by master artists and licensed by (C)Banco de Mexico Diego Rivera & Frida Kahlo Museums Trust/VG Bild-Kunst, Bonn 2008."

In the spirit of transparency, that's the quote from the press release I would have chosen for the article.
