DescriptionPre-eminent surrealist Frida Kahlo created paintings and drawings that conjured up a vision of herself and of her world. This drawing, a spontaneous creation and meditation of herself, was included in the major Kahlo retrospective in Berlin in 2010, the 2018 exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up, and the 2019 exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving. Her image and identity were central to her artwork as she defined herself through her ethnicity, disability, and politics in her paintings and drawings.
