Can I Read Your Diary?
During the last 10 years of her life, artist Frida Kahlo kept a diary expressing her pain and private thoughts. Kahlo never meant to share the very personal and emotional diary entries with anyone else. She wrote them for herself alone.
After her death, people wanted to know more about Kahlo's life. That's when the diary was published. Some people feel that reading the diary is an invasion of Kahlo's privacy. Others think it helps them to understand the artist more fully.
Is it OK to publish an artist's private diary after his or her death?
