This was the first Frida Kahlo painting made after her marriage to Diego Rivera.
Perhaps having colored photographs for her father (a professional photographer) influenced the painter to decide to change the Renaissance style for something more traditional.
In this self-portrait, Frida is seen as posing for the camera, she uses bright colors that add luminosity to the painting.
In previous portraits, Frida uses a Renaissance style that has nothing to do with this simple style, closer to her Mexican roots.
Her luxurious dress has been exchanged for the simplicity of the environment.
The painting is made in oil on canvas and belongs to a private collection located in the United States in the city of Boston.
