Frida Kahlo is the second most wanted artist in Google search tool during the year 2020

19 March 2021

The UK Paint Products Network Blog Ken Bromley Art Supplies used Google to answer a question its editors had in mind: who are the most famous painters in the world?

With museums and art galleries closed due to the pandemic, they went after the artists most wanted in the search tool during the year 2020. The result highlighted three names: Leonardo DeVinci, Frida Kahlo e Vincent Van Gogh.

Ken Bromley Art Supplies team has created several maps showing the most popular artists worldwide and in many specific world areas. Frida Kahlo resulted to be the most sought-after artist in 29 countries, including Brazil, the United States, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay.

“We were quite surprised that only 13 different artists actually won. We think this shows the huge impact the all-time greats have had as they are still relevant and their work is still admired today,” Evans said of their findings. “We were delighted to see Frida Kahlo come in in second place. Although people in the art world know who she is, many people have never heard of her so we think it’s great that this research might help make more people discover her work. It was interesting that Frida Kahlo, a Mexican artist, was the number one artist for USA.”
