About

Diego on my Mind (1943) is a double-portrait emblematic of Kahlo’s gravitation toward personal motifs and self-portraiture. The central subject of the work is Kahlo herself, dressed in a traditional headdress from Tehuantepec, in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. This choice of garment, whose colorful patterned folds are accented by an intricate floral crown, reflects Kahlo’s embrace of Mexicanidad – her pride for her Mexican cultural and visual heritage. On Kahlo’s forehead a second portrait of her tumultuous and volatile lover, Diego Rivera, literalizes the titular expression “Diego on my Mind.” Painted after the couple’s rekindling of their marriage following a divorce within the same year in 1940, this work is a compelling statement of love and perhaps infatuation.

We Offer High Quality

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free mat board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like a wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
