Self Portrait with Loose Hair - Description

Mexican Ssurrealist Frida Kahlo painted her Self Portrait with Loose Hair in the year 1947. Composed of oil on masonite, this painting measures sixty-one by forty-five centimeters. The self portrait depicts the black haired artist, her hair hanging about her body freely. What makes this painting unique is the slight parting of Kahlo’s lips, usually pursed tight as her hair. It is a rare image of the artist whose hard, dark features are usually highlighted by a stern expression and tightly pulled hair. In her hands a sign loosely reads, “Here is my portrait, Frida Kahlo, with my image in front of the mirror. I am thirty-seven years old and it is the month of July, 1947, In Coyacon, Mexico, where I am from.” The inclusion of a scroll in Self Portrait with Loose Hair quintessentially Kahlo, whose figures often sat below or adjacent to parchment inscribed with statements of various kinds. These words are indicative of Kahlo’s desire to express herself as an artist to the world in light of her personal tragedies including disease, injury and marital issues with her husband, Mexican muralist Diego Rivera with whom she shared an intensely passionate yet sporadically turbulent relationship. Frida Kahlo’s Self Portrait with Loose Hair is a beautifully simple, stripped down depiction of this Mexican artist whose name and face stand as beacons of hope to all of those struggling to make beautiful art amidst the hardships of a modern world.
