Deigo and I Painting by Frida Kahlo was a 8.75x11 inch oil on canvas mounted on Masonite painting created in 1949.
A sad mourning crying Frida looks at the viewer as her long black hair wraps around her neck and tears pour from her eyes. She is dressed in a red dress with gold trim and a image of her husband, artist Diego Rivera, appears on her forehead with the all seeing eye located on his. The background is green.
Possible Interpretations (Leave your own thoughts below)
This painting was commissioned by friends Florence Arquin and Sam Williams. When the painting was commissioned, Frita produced a happy sketch of herself. Before the painting could be completed, her husband Deigo was caught having a very public affair with Mexican movie star Maria Felix and crushed Frida. The painting reflected her pain including a sad sorrowful expression. Her hair wrapped around her neck represents her feeling of being helpless and strangled by the situation. The presents of Deigo shows that he is always on her mind and she still loves him. The original clients were shocked at the change of the paintings theme when they finally received it, but received a soulful beautiful work of passion and art.
