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.
