Self-Portrait Dedicated to Leon Trotsky (Between the Curtains).

Name: Self-Portrait Dedicated to Leon Trotsky (Between the Curtains).
Artist: Frida Kahlo
Location: National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington
Year: 1937

Frida was married to the famous Mexican muralist Diego Rivera. Throughout her marriage, she carried on affairs with all sorts of famous and beautiful people. Diego carried on affairs as well. Diego and Frida did love each other but they were wild people and free thinkers. Frida was the most desired woman of her time and she seduced anyone that she felt attracted to. The famous affair with the fugitive Communist leader, Leon Trotsky began when he was a guest at her home along with his wife. When Trotsky was murdered, for a while, both she and Diego were under suspicion. Several years after Trotsky's death, Diego and Frida enjoyed telling people that they invited him to Mexico just to get him killed, but no one knows if they were telling the truth or not.
