Extraordinary Mexican artist Frida Kahlo painted many images of herself, her pet monkeys and a lush background of plants, including “Self-Portrait with Monkeys.” Created during her most prolific period, this work may portray Kahlo (1907 – 1954) when she taught at Mexico City’s School of Painting and Sculpture. Shortly after Kahlo took the position there, her health deteriorated, and she had to teach at home. Her class eventually dwindled to only four students, who dubbed themselves “Los Fridos.” In this painting, those loyal students are thought to be represented by Kahlo’s beloved monkeys.
Frida Kahlo (1907 – 1954) was a legendary Mexican painter whose striking artworks reflected a lifetime of unbearable pain, emotional upheaval and her volatile marriage to artist Diego Rivera. Surviving polio, Kahlo was 18 when she was seriously injured in a devastating bus accident, and began painting in bed while she slowly recovered. Kahlo endured a lifetime of operations and a partial amputation of her right leg, conveying her agony through stark self-portraits that were deliberately Naïve and influenced by the Mexican folk art she loved. Kahlo created more than 200 artworks in her short life, and was the first woman to sell a painting to the esteemed Louvre in Paris.
