When learning about the U.S. -Mexico borderlands with regards to female painters, one cannot forget to include Frida Kahlo. Kahlo gained lots of popularity for her art work in the 1930’s and 1940’s. She painted lots of self portraits and displayed her life experiences through her art. Many people have argued that she made a huge impact to modern art and that her artwork will remain a true inspiration for many new artists. Her creativity and fame has set an example of how a Mexican woman can succeed in a country that has done so much to keep Mexican women in the bottom tier.
Although she detests surrealism, her work was influenced by surrealism and had an enormous impact on Latin American art. European art movements have always influenced Latin America and inspired
Frida Kahlo created many glorious pieces. One of her most intriguing pieces is The Two Fridas. The image is quite symbolic and meaningful. Kahlo was a Mexican artist greatly known for her self portraits and the pain, passion and feminism of her paintings. The name of the piece I choose to analysis is Las dos Fridas, also known as The Two Fridas.
Diego Rivera is a painter and a muralist who had an abstract style in his work. Most of his themes were depicting the lives of the Mexican people.

Throughout history, art has been used to explore the identity of individuals and of society. Two artists who encapsulate both society and their own identities through their works are, Frida Kahlo and Cindy Sherman. Frida Kahlo (1907- 1954) was a Mexican painter known for her "surrealist" self-portraits. Kahlo's paintings "The Two Frida's" and "Self-portrait with cropped hair" embody Kahlo's personal struggles with her identity throughout her life. Contrastingly, Cindy Sherman (1954- ) is an American photographer and film director knows most famously for her controversial portraits.
In the Documentary of Frida Kahlo published by PBS America on October 26th,2012 there were many Pros and some Cons I noticed. Some Pros I noticed was that their were many pictures of her artwork and I really liked that because her artwork was amazing the way she drew was really detailed, my favorite drawing they showed was the one she drew when she had unfortunately lost her baby. Just the way she detailed her drawing, you can connect to the way she felt and the things that were going on her mind during that time, that’s how deep her artwork was. Also something else I liked was Frida Kahlo 's personality the way the narrator described her was really persuaded and admiring, because just the way she went through an unexpected tragedy she stayed positive about it the whole time, and her love life with Diego Rivera seem so passionate well except the times when he was cheating on her, but even when he did Frida Kahlo 's respond to it was so strong, she will make him beg her for forgiveness and she’ll go days without talking to him. And honestly as a lady 's point of view, it’s really hard to ignore your love one but at the same time they did you wrong so you know

Maya Angelou was one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. She discussed topics that most people never would have, with open arms. She truly was a woman of many talents and her work will last throughout the ages. Maya Angelou. A true renaissance woman who will be remembered… if we make her works part of the American school curriculum.
This is a critical analysis of the painting Henry Ford Hospital by Frida Kahlo. This artwork consists of oil paint on a tin canvas. It was painted in Detroit, Michigan after she had one of her many miscarriages. Today it can be found in the Collection of Museo Dolores Olmedo in Xochimilco, Mexico (Esaak). This analysis will describe the elements of design, principles of design, and the reason Kahlo created this artwork.
In Self-Portrait the images on both sides of the border can be understood as the ideological tools of national propaganda. Kahlo keeps the history alive as she portrays a true vision of Mexico. Frida celebrates the cross-cultural identity that Mexico embraced after the turmoil of the revolution - a heritage of, Indian, American, Spanish, and British to just name a few. Her paintings became a connecting thread of Mexico’s history as she did not neglect tying the time in which she lived to the Aztec past (pbs.org). Victor Zamaudio-Taylor, an art historian, states that she has become "a model for Mexican Americans and Hispanics in the United States because she nurtures a sense of who [we] are and of a long history and of continuities."
This essay examines one of the many self-portrait paintings by Frida Kahlo called ‘broken column’ (1944). In this painting Kahlo portrays herself as a complete full bodied woman while also reflecting her broken insides. She stands alone against a surreal barren fissured landscape that echoes the open wound in her torso. A broken stone column replaces her damaged spine and is protected by a white orthopaedic corset, while sharp nails pierce into her olive naked flesh. Frida is partially nude except for the corset and white bandages.
One great notion I have developed over the years is that every human has gone through some meaning experiences in his/her life that he/ she can identify with when such experience is depicted through an artwork, painting, photography, or any form of media. After coming in contact with Dorothea Lange’s Migrant Mother, 1936, artwork (fig 4.151), I feel more connected to this artwork because it speaks directly to me and draws my attention to my personal life experience. This artwork is more of Leo Tolstoy’s definition of art that views art from a social prospective. Lange’s Migrant Mother artwork shows a mother’s strength and determination in the time of extreme need. Observing this artwork, we can conclude that the there’s always a strong, natural
