FRIDA KAHLO Painter of the selfportrait Frida Kahlo was born in Mexico on July 6, 1907. Many tragedies occurred in Frida s life, which in turn led her to become a strong and independent artist. In 1929 Frida married a highly esteemed muralist also from

Mexico named Diego Rivera. Her marriage was full of infidelity and unhappiness. Diego By Frida

Diego Rivera (The Wedding Portrait)" Painted after two years of marriage to Rivera

"I paint self portraits because I am so often alone. Because I am the subject I know best." Frida Kahlo may have felt alone, but through her paintings, she has

connected with many others. In painting the subject she knows best, she depicts her own personal pain, fear, anguish, loss - and even joy. The rest of us marvel at how she can depict our heartbreak, our sadness, our loneliness. It's as if the physical pain that frida was forced to endure gave her the means to depict her feelings so honestly on canvas.

Little Deer Many of Fridas paintings represent the pain and suffering afflicted by tragedies that occurred in her life, including her

unhappy marriage with Diego. Fridas eccentric art is recognized throughout the world. She is well known for expressing her feelings on canvas.

Self portraits can also show others who you are in other ways. My Dress Hangs Here Frida Kahlo was from Mexico. In this self portrait she

paints her memories of her homeland. "Self-Portrait on the Borderline Between Mexico and the United States," 1932 The selfportrait was painted while Kahlo and Rivera were in the United States. The marriage of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo is one of the most famous alliances between artists. It is a well-known fact that

they had a passionate and stormy relationship, filled with great love and also betrayals. They both had incredible talents and vision, but Diego's work would be more public and monumental, whereas Frida's was more

personal and intimate in My thoughts about Diego scale. QuickTime and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Frida kahlo in her studio

Self Portraits with Monkey A self-portrait is a painting by an artist of him or her self. The painting tells us something

about who the artist is. It gives us clues about what is important to the artist. We can guess what the artist loves by ROOTS

the Portrait of Doctor Farill Assignment: Paint your own self-portrait. You will be the main person -the focus- of the painting. You do not need to paint your whole body. You can paint only your head and shoulders. You might want to paint a profile of yourself. A profile is a side view.
