Frida Kahlo self-portraits depicted the artist in a variety of moods, though normally with a seemingly pensive look. Most of her self-portraits would feature simple expressions but with complicated detail around the rest of the painting. Frida was a proud Mexican and her style of painting was very typical for this country, with bright colours the main focus in a similar way European impressionists who would value colour above anything else in their paintings.

Frida Kahlo was a revolutionary artist in many ways and this helped her popularity to rise greatily in the certain sections of society that she represented. Women respected the way her art was honest and clearly depicted female life whereas previously painters had normally given an unrealistic coverage of women with their paintings. Kahlo went beyond her health problems to produce a career which oozes creativity and strength of character which now impresses so many all over the world. You can also buy Frida Kahlo prints here.

Two Fridas

Two Fridas is an odd but inspired work by Kahlo and certainly one her best known too. It is a self-portrait featuring herself twice in different outfits in a highly memorable choice of painting. Kahlo would always find inspiration to paint herself and this would sometimes help her to overcome her own loneliness which was a common emotion that she felt throughout her life.

The troubles which are underlined within this painting and generally ignored by those who appreciate the work in the modern day, who prefer to reflect on it's originality and the beauty found within this work.

Portraits by Kahlo were broadly mixed between full length and just shoulder-up paintings where she would either concentrate on the expressions of the subject or include greater visual information on their clothing and the surrounding scenery. Many of her paintings have a great charm and style within them which combines the native approach of traditional Mexico with her own creativity and revolutionary artistic confidence.

Self-Portrait with Monkey

Self-Portrait with Monkey is one of the examples of how Frida Kahlo would carefully consider the surroundings within her self-portraits, and use these to directly affect the finished impression that were given from her own painted image. The snake and monkey included within this painting suggest a contrasting personality for Frida as well as being in touch with traditional Mexico, by placing herself within a scene of natural forestry. It is easy to see why Kahlo is loved so much within her country of birth, Mexico, when you study her paintings such as this.


Frame is another example of the detail and illustrative content which would go into portraits by this skilled Mexican painter who in this painting added charming birds into each bottom corner to finish off an elaborate frame around a portrait of the artist herself. As with previous works, there is also a focus on nature with flowers covering most of the rest of the edges of the painting, and giving the artist the opportunity to offer up her bold colour choices for which she is so well known.
