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 🙁
