Frida was capable of showing her view of the world. The painting "The Two Frida's" was made in 1939. According to the Kahlo by Andrea Ketterman, Frida completes a self-portrait composed of two personalities. She processes the emotions surrounding her separation and marital crisis. The another part of her person which was respected and loved by Diego with Mexican costume, while other Frida wears a European dress.
(Mencimer, 2002) 2. Between her emotional struggles, she also lived most of her life in pain because of her poor health, posture, and the permanent damage caused by her bus accident. A lot of her work shows mostly Frida herself suffering or being trapped or broken in some way. 3. Not only does she deal with pain, but she also deals with self image.
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.
The Two Frida 's can be interpreted in different views and aspects. In an interpretation by Hayden Herrera, the painting is connected to Diego Rivera. In the book Frida a Biography of Frida Kahlo, Herrera goes more in depth about what Rivera meant to Kahlo. For instance, Herrera states, "one of them is Frida that Diego loved… the second Frida, the woman whom Diego no longer loved" (278). Frida would dress the way Rivera wanted her to and at that point if he cheated on her he did not love her with the traditional Mexican clothing.
As Andre Breton states, “Surrealism…is a way of thinking, a way of transforming existence.” Surrealism is an artistic movement in which young artists wanted to “push the accepted ideas of reality” and present an image from un-normal worlds such as dreams, fantasies and held back feelings and free their minds from logical sense. The term ‘surreal’ or ‘surrealism’ was first openly used by the French critique Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-918) in a play titled ‘Les Mamellaes De Tirèscias’ and a ballet titles ‘Parade’. The term is also later used in the journal ‘Litterature’, which is written by the French writer and poet, André Breton (1896-1966). To discuss the philosophy of surrealism, surrealist (mainly in Paris) would regularly meet at cafés as apposed to a regular art school. The topics discussed include the art of ‘Laurtréamont’ and ‘Rimaid’.
Kahlo’s work resonates more intimacy and emotion, which were often influenced by events and misfortunes in her life. On the other hand, Diego used his art to display his political and personal opinions with the hopes of instigating some social progression, at an individual and collective level. The first thing the audience is able to see and learn of Frida is she was an authentic and genuine painter. For example when Trotsky seeks refuge in Kahlo’s house, he admires her paintings and acknowledges
While recovering from the accident Frida started and finished her first self-portrait painting a year later, then gave it as a gift to her former partner Alejandro Gómez Arias. Frida’s style of work is categorized to be surrealist, however, she did not consider it to be surrealist art work because her art was based off to be more autobiographical paintings. The influence of her work comes from psychological and physical painful events that occurred to her during childhood, her early years of adulthood, her husband’s unfaithfulness. Frida had interest in her mixed ancestry of German-Mexican along with the immense amount of nationalism in her husband’s artwork influenced her artworks to be dealing with issues of national identity.

It flourished in the second and third decades of the twentieth century. Surrealists used symbols as a method of telling a story. The Surrealism movement has spread across the world and greatly influenced the visual arts, music, philosophy and political thought and social theory in many countries of the world. Guilloume Apollinaire (1903) redact the word Surrealism and it appeared for the first time in the introduction to his play "Les Maumelle's do Tiresias".
