Portrait of Frida Kahlo by k Madison Moore


Praying for a Miracle - Frida Kahlo
Forever Frida Series

16 x 20 oil on Canvas

Before Frida Kahlo reached her 25th birthday, she had contracted polio, survived a horrific bus accident and endured a traumatic miscarriage. However, the loss of her baby — compounded by the alienation she was experiencing shaped her artistic vision and propelled her career forward.

Her miscarriage and unfulfilled desire to have a child became a major theme of her work.

The miscarriage also influenced Rivera to change a panel of one of his murals that he was painting at the time. Instead of an agricultural scene the panel shows a baby inside the bulb of a plant.

 'She felt so disheartened because she would have loved to have a little Dieguito, but her dream did not come true.
