Autorretrato con Collar de Espinas (Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird) 1940 by Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. Oil on canvas. Housed at the Harry Ransom Center, University of Texas at Austin, in Austin, TX.
When informed of the amputation of her leg the artist stated philosophically: "LEGS." A prosthetic leg that belonged to the late Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is displayed at the Frida Kahlo museum in Mexico City.
Artist: Frida Kahlo Title: "Self Portrait Dedicated to Dr. Eloesser" Medium: oil on masonite Size: x 40 cm Ownership: Private Collection Comments: Kahlo wearing her pain as a necklace of thorns. I like that she looks so strong in this portrait.
