'Lost' Frida Kahlo painting surfaces after six decades
A painting by Mexican artist Frida Kahlo not seen in public for more than 60 years is going to auction next week in New York.
The 1929 work, Girl with Necklace, was given by Kahlo's husband to a woman who had assisted her before her death.
The assistant, now in her 90s, kept the painting in a bedroom in her home in California until she offered it to auction house Sotheby's this year.
It is expected to fetch up to $2m (£1.6m) at the sale on 22 November.
