Frida Kahlo was an extraordinary woman, whose life was full of tragedy, love, politics, but most importantly art. Kahlo remains a unique figure in art history since she, unlike so many other female artists, developed her own style that became uniquely associated with her. Whether creating symbolist portraits of herself or surreal montages of everyday life, her works have a primitive emotional quality and an insight that is unrivaled by many of her peers, including her artist husband and mentor Diego Rivera. Kahlo’s paintings are lush, sensuous masterpieces that expose the hopes and heartbreaks she experienced.
“The Love Embrace of the Universe, the Earth (Mexico), Diego, Me, and Senor Xolotl” (1949)
