Frieda and Diego Rivera Painting by Frida Kahlo was a 31x39.5 inch oil on canvas painting created in 1931. This was Frida's first exhibited painting and was written off by many as just the workings of a famous artist's wife.
A self portrait of Frida Kahlo standing in traditional Mexican dress floating small and humbly next to her large artist husband Diego Rivera in a fine suit. Diego is holding a paint brush and paint palette while a red bird fly overhead holding a banner.
