As an adult, Frida Kahlo renounced all religions. In her words, “I have enjoyed being contradictory.” Her paintings, however, include multiple religious references, drawing on Christian, Hindu, and Mesoamerican traditions as well as Freud’s thesis “Moses and Monotheism.” Through her art, Kahlo personalized a variety of religious symbols and invented her own hybrid cosmologies.

Gannit Ankori, professor, Fine Arts; chair, Israeli Art, Department of Fine Arts and Schusterman Center for Israel Studies, Brandeis University
