Enthralled by Frida Kahlo and her life and paintings, her connection and relationship with Diego Rivera, her husband, I visited the exhibition : “Frida Kahlo – Making Herself up at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 2018. I had read the notices incorrectly, and mistakenly understood that photos were permitted. They were not! I did, however, manage to capture a few and replicated this one on canvas. My friend who bought this, has a special association with Frida Kahlo – having already bought two of my portraits of Frida, and also a strong connection to the costumes and clothes.
