frida kahlo: haute art

These paintings from Frida Kahlo (career of 1926 until her death in 1954) show vivid colors, realistic details and her signature complex symbolism relating to specific incidents in her life. My favorite being her personified shot down deer, a brilliant representation of her emotional state.

Frida was a fantastic painter, so much emotion in her work. I would say her as a deer is also my favorite one, thank you for posting this!
