Historical Context:
Frida Kahlo's The Two Fridas was her first large scale painting, done in 1939, and was done shortly after the news of her divorce from Diego Rivera. It is said to symbolize her heartache over her failed marriage, and similarly her struggle with identity: the battle between her heritage and what had seemingly been her place in the world in Europe.
