Courtesy Artisphere / Frida painting on her bed with Miguel Covarrubias at her side, 1940, Mexico City. Photographer unknown. The artist found a way to work, even while in traction. She used a device that allowed her to look up and draw and paint, and affixed a strong light to help her do so. Covarrubias, a Mexican painter and influential caricaturist, was a longtime friend of Kahlo and Diego Rivera.
"Nothing is worth more than laughter. It is strength to laugh and to abandon oneself, to be light. Tragedy is the most ridiculous thing." - Frida Kahlo
