#adrawingaday #whatwouldFRIDAwear

In 1939 Frida’s husband Diego Rivera divorced her and she didn’t take it well. She spent some time in Paris and befriended Pablo Picasso and Marcel Duchamp. Picasso gave her a pair of gold earrings in the shape of little hands. These earrings are seen in a painting she did in 1940 titled Self Portrait, Dedicated to Dr Eloesser and I have seen a few photographs of her wearing them. How are these hand earrings not a thing? They are so cute and ironic… the baby hands of the child she never had  🙁
