Frida Kahlo, “Portrait of Eva Frederick, born in New York, painted by Frida Kahlo,” 1931

During her stay in San Francisco from November 1930 to June 1931, Frida Kahlo painted a number of portraits of friends and acquaintances. Although we know nothing more than Eva Frederick’s name today, it is not difficult to deduce that Frida Kahlo must have felt great sympathy for her sincere and intelligent sitter.

Some who describe this painting say that the subject of the portrait was simply a model for the painting and nothing is known about her. Others say that Eva Frederick was a professional black model who had posed in Mexico for Rivera and other artists and photographers.
