I just returned from this exhibit, and I must say that Frida was an interesting study in the female psychology.
She suffered both extreme physical and mental pain during the most creative years of her life, and her works depicted these emotions.
I'm not that much a fan of her portraits or contemporary works, but the surrealism and symbolism she employed in her self
-portrait expressionist works were incredibly powerful, worth the price alone.
Her conveyance of the pain she endured through her paintings had me, wifie, and my daughter praising her courage.
He husband, Diego Rivera, though known as a charismatic philanderer, was ugly as a toad, but very talented himself.
Anyway, if anyone is interested in art and lives near San Francisco, be sure to catch the exhibit before it closes next Sunday (9/28).
Get there early
though, because it sells out very fast!
We attempted to catch the exhibit yesterday, but of course it was sold out so we went to the Coit Tower, where coincidentally, her husband Diega Rivera was involved in a mural project with some other artists.
