Frida Kahlo “gleefully dabbles” in the Detroit News, February 2, 1933“Of course, he does pretty well for a little boy, but it is I who am the big artist.”Kahlo was in Detroit during the depression because her husband, Diego Rivera, was commissioned by Edsel Ford to paint a mural for the Ford Motor Co. (She called it “Gringolandia.”) At the time this article was published, she was only 25, her mother had fallen deathly ill, and less than a year ago, she’d suffered a miscarriage in the Henry Ford Hospital. Here’s a timeline of their visit, and more about its significance. (It’s a truly bizarre story: the communist artist was smitten with Ford and Detroit, saying, “Henry Ford (is) a true poet and artist, one of the greatest in the world.”)The painting in the bottom right of the article is called “Self-portrait on the Borderline Between Mexico and the United States,” a reflection on her time there:Related: Hedda Sterne, George Grosz in Dallasvia @louisaguilar_DN
