Calla Lilies from Diego - Frida Kahlo Portrait
The name Calla Lily comes from a Greek word for beauty,
purity, holiness, and faithfulness. These were Diego’s feeling for Frida.
I couldn’t wait to paint this composition. It just came to me and went so
well while I painted it. Frida loved butterflies and and birds and all
kinds of animals and featured them many times in her paintings.
Frida’s love of nature set her spirit free even in her
challenges and limitations.
Some of Frida’s Favorite things were in the bedroom. They were her toy collections, pre-Hispanic art pieces, Judas figures, and a diorama of mounted butterflies under glass.
Picasso made these "hand" earrings for Frida Kahlo during her visit to Paris, for her first exhibition (which was organized by Breton and Marcel Duchamp), these were another prize possession of Frida’s.
