Frida Kahlo Art Exhibit at the SFMOMA

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.

Frida Kahlo

Wish I lived near San Francisco...would definately love to see that exhibition!! Though I'm not a huge fan of her paintings themselves, I find all the meanings and psychology behind them very interesting!! She was definately an incredible women with an amazing story - would have loved to have met her in person!!!!

Really hope to travel to Mexico sometime in the future, definately want to visit her Museum/House...I'm sure it is an amazing place to visit, to see her things, her surroundings, the place that she lived and loved so much, would be a great experience!!!
