tattoo of the muse
According to the information given on Fridakahlo.org, where this image was sourced, ‘Frida drew many self-portraits with her pets and this is one of those and she included her parrots in this painting. When this portrait was painted she was just remarried with Diego but was having a love affair with Nickolas Muray, who helped Frida with her first exhibition in New York in 1938 and was a successful portrait photographer.’
