About The Two Fridas
The Two Fridas is a portrait of love, heartbreak and duality. Almost life-sized, it was Kahlo's largest painting and a testament to her emotional suffering.
Completed shortly after her divorce from acclaimed Mexican muralist, Diego Rivera, this striking oil on canvas highlights Kahlo’s different personalities: the traditional Frida with a broken heart in Tehuana costume sitting next to an independent Frida in modern European dress.
The dark and stormy clouds that dominate the background reflect the nature of their marriage: tempestuous and filled with infidelities.
