  2. Umm, this pic may be a bit disturbing but it represents a chapter in fridas life. Of all the things to call stupid should be the doddles in your notebook. Frida Kahlo is one of the most visual and creative painter, ever. I have not seen one painting that coulod ever excel hers.

  9. Are you people serious? This woman was an utter genius.
    She should be known as a role model for her strength through all of her struggles.
    This one in particular was painted was Kahlo was in the hospital( I think after her miscarraige? Maybe after the bus accident..) And the nurses/doctors forced her to eat.
    It is supposed to look repulsive because that is exactly how she felt.
    I’m getting one of her paintings tattood on my back (:
    She is an inspiration to artists, and owned surealism.

  10. I love the way you “critics” come online and make inane and banal comments about a great artist who died probably more than 30 years before you were born.

    So let me get this straight: you children criticise – obviously not being artists yourselves – the work of a recognised great artist.

    You, who obviously have nothing better to do in your life than flake around online and criticise that which in your childishness you cannot possible hope to understand? Get an education, live some life, get out of your little small life and come back in 15 years darlings, and then after you demonstrate that you are truly great artists or critics, then and only then we might listen to your puerile (in the true dictionary sense) comments such as “dis is a stupid and disturbing pic” and “I believe the title of this masterpiece was ‘Farts are Freedom’ “.

  11. I agree. Ms. Kahlo was one of the greats! Too bad that wasn’t recognized when she was living. Yes, some of her paintings are very expressive, especially when it came to dealing with her physical pain, which was all-consuming at times. And please, people, don’t pay attention to these ignorant comments from trailer trash. They are uneducated and are to be pitied..

    • Aren’t all the great artists only recognized after their death?

  12. when a person has no hope or dream, its life is a total trash.. everyday is the same.. day and night again and again .. vacuum life.. she is an expressionist (only my view).. I admire her.. that’s all..

  18. Can somebody get this little kids to kinder garden? look you little fuck face. first of, pass your little state exams and your SAT’s, get into a good college you will have to take art classes and you will learn to appreciate this paintings. I think it’s unbelievable people like you try to criticize things if you can’t even wipe you ass right. I agree get an education and then you won’t be able to talk dumb things out of your mouth little putrid fuck haha and yeah talk whatever little dip shit.

    • It’s a shame that while Mark is so quick to criticize and wave his degrees and test scores in others’ faces, he’s clearly not particularly educated himself. I went to college, so I know that not everybody enrolled deserves to be there. Unfortunately, if you’re not smart enough to get a degree, you still can if you have a lot of money. Being annoyed by these kids’ comments is understandable, but thinking you’re better than them while doing the exact same thing is not. Not to mention the fact that the angrier you become, the more fun it is for them.

      “I agree get an education and then you won’t be able to talk dumb things out of your mouth little putrid fuck haha and yeah talk whatever little dip shit.” What does that even mean? Maybe I’m biased because I have an English degree, but did you neglect to take a basic English course in the midst of the extensive art studies you have supposedly done?

      Anyway, every once in awhile I come across an artist like this who I’m not familiar with and probably should be, and I kick myself for taking that intro to theater class instead of art history. I think I would’ve got a lot more out of it.

  19. hello i think that those peoples who ar commenting this shit are stupid and they need to fuck hard, very hard!!! and put a big dick in your us till it get red and rounchy

  20. I think it is so sad that a simple thread that should be discussing the work of a great artist has deteriorated into a morass of curse words, pornographic retorts and juvenile insults.

    I think that Frida would be devastated if she could read this post- she went through more pain in her life than most people combined. The last thing she would want or need is for one of her works to spark this type of banality and disrespect.

    Be the bigger person – this is the Internet – stop reading the thread and walk away.

  23. I would like to agree with ‘boz’, about the comment about Kahlo being a recognised great artist. Of course she was a revolutionary and one of the great minds of an incredible century – being remembered as a part of it is an achievement in itself. I also agree that some certain little motherfuckers should get lives. A vocabulary could be a helpful place to begin. By the way, I would just like to add that I am seventeen years old.
