Me and My Doll, 1937 Frida Kahlo

Me and My Doll 1937 Frida Kahlo

In this painting, Me and My Doll, Frida shows herself next to a doll in bed. She, Frida, used to collect dolls because she could not have children due to the bus accident that she suffered in 1925. There were three children that she, Frida, lost before painting this picture. If we analyze this painting, Me and My Doll, in her image, Frida is seen distant from her wrist while smoking a cigarette, something that is not usually done when there is a baby near her, so it is interpreted that Frida does not show any affection for her. Her expression is sad, with her arms crossed in an empty room and a darker skin color than she usually painted.
