A Tribute to Cat Lover and Artist Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo was an influential Mexican painter, best known for her self-portraits. As a feminist icon and animal lover, it’s not surprising that many artists have chosen to depict Frida with cats, or as a cat herself. In one of her most famous works, Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird, she has a black cat on her shoulder.

When I look at her self-portraits and photographs, I can see why artists tend to re-imagine Frida as a cat. Her face is full of wisdom and mystery. Her posture is dignified and queen-like. Her body language implies a casual languidness.

Please enjoy several beautiful tributes to Frida Kahlo below, full of bright colors just like her paintings. Even more on my Pinterest board. Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!
