Calla Lilies from Diego - Frida Kahlo Portrait by k Madison Moore

Calla Lilies from Diego - Frida Kahlo Portrait


Fine Art Prints and Art Cards Available

The name Calla Lily comes from a Greek word for beauty,
purity, holiness, and faithfulness. These were Diego’s feelings 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.
