Frida Kahlo on Mastering Painting

“To paint is the most terrific thing that there is, but to do it well is very difficult. It is necessary…to learn the skill very well, to have very strict self-discipline and above all to have love, to feel a great love for painting.”

– Frida Kahlo

1932 black and white photograph of Frida Kahlo with a stern expression, gazing directly into the camera. She has dark hair parted in the middle and slicked back into a bun. Her traditional earrings and multiple necklaces add a decorative touch to her simple yet elegant shawl draped over her shoulders.
