ART AND IDENTITY:THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART
FRIDA KAHLO " FULANG-CHUNG AND I.
This artwork caught my attention the second i looked at it. Frida Kahlo made many self portraits.What caught my attention from this particular art piece was the monkey and her strong fierce face. her soft expression but yet demanding. She looked really natural and her bold eyebrows really complimented her face. The story behind the monkey was that it was one of her surrogates, she was unable to have children of her own and found the love of children through her pets. Frida Kahlo painted many self portraits of herself and decided to include her pet monkey and really showed that she had a sense of humor. This is the artowk that makes in personal and shows her personality.
This is Fernand Leger "the divers"(French, 1881–1955).i choose this for historical because of the painter Léger borrowed from other ideas toward cubism, surrealism, but he still remained through all of it.. His art work is based on what happened in the real world and throughout his work he expresses it. I choose this one for historical because of the legs and the body insides coming out. And also witht hte different meshes of color showing different personality and countries that were affected by the war.
