So what is the Frida connection to Capture our Hearts? Perhaps her most famous painting is The Two Fridas, which she painted in 1939. I was concerned about copyright and thought the screen shot below from the PBS web site would be ok. Among other themes, The Two Fridas depicts Frida's struggle between her proper, cultured self (in white) and her more primitive self, who is in love with Diego Rivera whose image she holds, with both Fridas bonded together by a shared artery.

I so love this painting, that I featured it in a series of Frida pendants last year with the one below showing Proper Frida.
