Frida Kahlo

La Columna Rota/The Broken Column

1944

oil on masonite

Kahlo was 18 years old when she was involved in a horrific traffic accident, in which an iron rod pierced her abdomen, right foot was crushed, and two vertebrae were fractured, as well as a number of other bones, including eleven fractures in her right leg. As she recovered in a full body cast, her mother brought her a small lap easel, and, with a mirror over her bed, began painting self-portraits. This self-portrait embodies many elements that were in Kahlo’s artwork, including the themes of isolation, a broken body, and intense suffering and pain. This painting also embodies another one of Kahlo’s themes, that of two bodies, one of which she is a complete and full bodied woman, and another, reflecting broken insides.

Frida is everything 🙏

Yes, you’re right, all signs can suffer from depression.

If you or someone you know is having a rough time, I really urge you to seek outside assistance from a medical professional.
