Frida Kahlo Self-Portrait with Monkey - 1940 Masterpiece Reproduction Printed in Refined Aluminum
*Frida Kahlo Self-Portrait with Monkey - 1940*
The darkness in the interstices of a wall of leaves in a nocturne entitled Self-Portrait with Monkey, 1940, seems a more straightforward expression of Frida's gloom. Here a blood-red ribbon braided through her hair winds around her neck four times and around her pet monkey's once. The mood is claustrophobic; beginning in the year of her divorce, Frida began to encircle her neck in self-portraits with ribbons, necklaces, veins, vines, or a monkey's long arms that threaten to choke her. To identify the monkey as her close relative, Frida made his left arm continuous with her braid. Although she may have wanted to show her feeling of connectedness, the effect is sinister.
