Exclusive to SFMOMA.
Actively reinventing herself throughout her career, Frida Kahlo (1907–1954) created potent representations of her personal identity, her native Mexico, and the historical epoch in which she lived. Many of her paintings combine depictions of the cosmos, the earth, and the body with Kahlo’s immediate reality, merging personal pain with the iconography of Mexican history. While visiting San Francisco in 1930 and 1931 with her husband, artist Diego Rivera, Kahlo’s paintings began to incorporate a vernacular style based, in part, on traditions of Mexican folk art.
