The Two Fridas - Description

Mexican Surrealist Frida Kahlo painted The Two Fridas in the year 1939. This self portrait is comprised of oil on canvas and depicts Kahlo with her dreamt self, appeared to be seated in front of a blue sky, white rolling clouds surrounding their heads adding to the concept of the dreamscape conducive to surrealism. The Two Fridas are holding hands, the one seated to the viewer’s left wearing a white dress contradictory to the traditional Mexican garments of the Frida to the right. The leftmost Frida’s heart, ripped out of its chest, is suspended in the space below the second Frida’s head. The two, joined at the hand are one unit in this surreal realm where the viewer is invited to share the heartache experienced by the artist who so boldly transcribes her personal strife to the canvas for the world to gaze upon. Kahlo’s The Two Fridas are an excellent representation of the alluring singularity held by surrealists that still manages to captivate a postmodern world. Kahlo remains as one of Mexico’s most bold and gifted artists, her personal tragedies to be forever studied as Mexican folk masterpieces. Take heed of Kahlo’s traditional pursed lips and stern expressions adorning the faces of her subjects. In her hand, the leftmost Kahlo holds a pair of scissors, her own blood dripping onto her white dress as she gazes out to the viewer.
