Frida Kahlo, born today in 1907, painted this powerful work shortly after divorcing Diego Rivera, who had been unfaithful.
[Frida Kahlo. Self-Portrait with Cropped Hair. 1940.]
The words on the painting say:
Look if i loved you, it was because of the hair, Now that you’re bald, I do not love you
to live in this world
you must be able
to do three things
to love what is mortal;
to hold it
against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go.
— Mary Oliver (via observando)
