Frida1932 by Guillermo Kahlo

Taken in Oct 1932 by her father Guillermo. The silver gelatin print, a gift to her childhood friend Isabel Campos sent after the sudden death of her mother Matilde, was inscribed with “De tu amigo que está muy triste” (From your friend who is very sad). If this wasn’t already evident, she further annotated the photo with drawn tears. It’s a beautiful image and presages her recurrent themes of pain and sadness in her art.
