Frida Kahlo’s Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird can be found at the University of Texas in Austin, thanks to Nickolas Muray. What might surprise you is, Muray and Kahlo had an affair that lasted ten years (TEN YEARS!), and this was painted at the end of it, in 1940.
Muray wanted to marry her…and she paints this.
Welp, I’ll hand it to you, Frida! I’ll be sure to send this to all my no-longer-attractive Bumble matches…and there’s a lot of them. That’ll send the right message!
