Self-Portrait with Monkey and Parrot.

Name: Self-Portrait with Monkey and Parrot.
Artist: Frida Kahlo
Location: Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo
Year: 1942

Frida Kahlo's work has sometimes been classified as surrealist. She never saw herself as a surrealist painter. She was preoccupied with themes of the female. She was able to express them with energy and candour as well as a wonderful sense of beauty. Her self-portraits, such as this one, can be hunting and amusing at the same time. "I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best." "I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration." "I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best."
