About

In 1930, Kahlo followed her husband to San Francisco; they packed their things and moved from Mexico to the United States. In this scene, Frida painted herself in between these two homes; on the right, an exaggerated industrial view of the US,  the Ford smokestacks emitting a cloudy American flag and on her left, a pre-columbian view of Mexico, with a temple and native plants. This dichotomy is also reflected in what she holds in her crossed arms, she has a cigarette in her right hand, and a Mexican flag in her left. Homesick for Mexico, she portrays the U.S. as an unfriendly place full of machinery and smog, and romanticizes her indigenous roots–which are quite literally present under the surface on which she stands.

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 matt 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 wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
