Frida Kahlo

This piece,

entitled "Roots" is an example of the unique and revolutionary style of Frida Kahlo. After visiting the Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico City, I have always referred to her pieces as a reminder of how the femenist message of the mid-19th century has influenced the art world. She incorporates in nature and the motif of death in nearly all of her pieces. This self-portrait of Kahlo depicts roots growing from within herself. This piece is an example of her usage of nature and the connection between nature and women in her paintings.
