  1. Very powerful painting. Her eyes and her large hands were the first things I notice. One wonders what hardships she had experienced in her life. What is she thinking about? It’s nice to see a painting from a Mexican! I’ll have to check this out a bit further. Thanks, Lori, for also enriching our lives this way!

  2. When I first viewed this one, the word that came to me was “ancestor”….sturdy stock of yesteryear! And, then, I read her bio……WOW!!!! fascinating, to say the least…..and the wife of Diego Rivera! I canNOT even imagine what her life was like!!!
    Thanks so much for sharing this relatively obscure (to me) personage who seems a bit “larger than life”!!!!!!

  3. I’ve been to Frieda’s home in Mexico City & studied her and her art prior to visiting. This is a picture I’ve never seen in the books. Many tragedies in her life, not withstanding Diego. She was in a lot of pain near the end of her life due to her earlier injuries – but still kept painting from her bed. Thanks for sharing.

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
