Seamstresses in Fine Art November 28, 2015 Dona Rosita Morillo Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) Mexican Read more HERE and HERE Related 6 responses to “Seamstresses in Fine Art” Very powerful painting. Her eyes and her large hands were the first things I notice. One wonders what hardships she had experienced in her life. What is she thinking about? It’s nice to see a painting from a Mexican! I’ll have to check this out a bit further. Thanks, Lori, for also enriching our lives this way! When I first viewed this one, the word that came to me was “ancestor”….sturdy stock of yesteryear! And, then, I read her bio……WOW!!!! fascinating, to say the least…..and the wife of Diego Rivera! I canNOT even imagine what her life was like!!! Thanks so much for sharing this relatively obscure (to me) personage who seems a bit “larger than life”!!!!!! She looks sweet, and very strong. Interesting back ground setting I look forward to seeing these wonderful pieces of art. “Women’s” work is never celebrated enough. Thank you. I’ve been to Frieda’s home in Mexico City & studied her and her art prior to visiting. This is a picture I’ve never seen in the books. Many tragedies in her life, not withstanding Diego. She was in a lot of pain near the end of her life due to her earlier injuries – but still kept painting from her bed. Thanks for sharing. That is the first Frida Kahlo painting I have seen that isn’t a self portrait! Interesting. Comments are closed.
