Frida Kahlo. Self-portrait

Mexican and Amerindian cultures are important in her work as well as her depiction of the female experience and form.

Frida Kahlo suffered lifelong health problems, many caused by a traffic accident. But she suffered much more because she cannot have children and due to a volatile marriage with the famous Mexican artist Diego Rivera.

Surrealist and naïve, she is one of the most important artist of the 20th century. However, how about her true personality? Today, listen to her!

Frida Kahlo was romantic, sad, authentic, free, sincere, sympathetic, and above all… An artist!!!

Suicide of Dorothy Hell

Inspirational quotes by Frida Kahlo:

Romantic: I leave you my portrait so that you will have my presence all the days and nights that I am away from you.

Sad: I tried to drown my sorrows, but the bastards learned how to swim, and now I am overwhelmed by this decent and good feeling.

Authentic: I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best.

Free: Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?

Sincere: There have been two great accidents in my life. One was the trolley, and the other was Diego. Diego was by far the worst.

Frida Kahlo. Self-portrait with Diego Rivera

Sympathetic: I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.

And above all… An artist!!!!!! I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.

    Frida famously said she was not a surrealist, but as you said. “painted her own reality.” Both she and Diego exhibited in the 1940 Surrealism show in D.F. (He never claimed to be a surrealist either. His piece for that show “Symbolic Landscape” is at MoMA in San Francisco) ) Andre Breton, father of surrealism, was their guest in D.F. and along with Diego & Trotsky they put out a Manifesto.
    Frida had an 8 month affair with Isamu Noguchi, who earlier had a relationship with Dorothy Hale (shown committing suicide in Frida’s recuerdo painted for Clare Booth Luce, Dorothy’s dear friend. The painting is at the Phoenix Art Museum.) Noguchi painted out Luce’s name at her request in the text at the bottom of the painting because she was appalled by the work.

  • what a fabulous piece on this magnificent artist whose heart and talent were far beyond her time – her spirit truly lives on and on for the world to share in its beauty – again, great piece on frida – many thanks!
