June 14: Added details of the making of the original painting and the disappointing reaction when it was exhibited in 1939 in Paris though Frida did achieve a first with the painting. Want to know more? Read here.

        These Frida Kahlo canvas prints are without doubt the best quality prints on the market. Far better than an ordinary print or poster, they have a depth to them that a scan or photo cannot possibly capture. They have to be seen in the flesh to be believed! From 2015, and while stocks, last they are each just 23.99 UK Sterling or $34.99 US Dollars (Outside UK) which includes postage (sent in a hard tube to avoid damage). Forget about art poster prints - get a canvas print with depth instead! You won't regret it.

        Sold with a full money back guarantee, they are so beautiful I have no doubt you will love them. Buy Print.

        Just bought a few of these from an art company in Glasgow and this is their blurb:

        Fine Quality Reproduction

        This is a stunning reproduction on canvas of the original painting by the above artist. We describe every reproduction which we create as a "Outstanding". You may think this to be a rather grand claim, but with our rigorous attention to detail allied with the very latest in technology, we doubt that you will disagree when you see the finished product.

        Latest Technology

        All of our prints are reproduced using the very latest technology which yields spectacular reproductions. We use only the finest quality 100% cotton canvas which would look perfect in any home.

        Attention to Detail

        Using contemporary historical information we digitally remaster every reproduction to produce an enhanced image. We have endeavoured to create a reproduction as the artist would have intended his work to have been displayed at the time when it was painted.

        On inspection, I was pleasantly surprised.

        Sent rolled in a hard tube to avoid damage. Unstretched. 18 x 12 inches (approx.); Image Size: 14.75 x 10.5 inches (approx.). Buy Print.

        Delivery Times

        Within the UK, you should receive your print within 5 working days. Probaly a bit quicker than that but to be on the safe side I put that estimate. So if you order on Monday you should receive it by Friday. And that includes all methods of payment listed below. Probaly one of the few places left who still take cheques!

        Outside the UK obviously takes a bit longer but currently (2014) they arrive on average within 10 - 14 working days from receipt of order. Usually quicker but again to be on the safe side I give this length of time.

        So wherever you order from you won't have long to wait to receive your beautiful canvas.

        Self-portrait "The Frame", around 1938. In 1939, the "Mexique" exhibition organized by Andre Breton took place in Paris, featuring examples of Mexican painting, sculpture, photography and popular art. Renou et Colle, a well-known gallery specializing in Surrealist art, agreed to provide the rooms.

        This self-portrait was amongst the exhibits, and was the first work by a 20th-century Mexican artist to be purchased by the Louvre. Rivera was very proud of this honour and often boasted about his wife's Paris triumph. The portrait and the blue ground are painted on an aluminium sheet. The decorative border of flowers and the two birds are painted on glass placed in front of the portrait.

        It is interesting to think that though Kahlo is revered today, and quite rightly so, the aforementioned exhibition was not a financial success. Even stranger when you think that not only did it feature Frida's work but also photographs by Manuel Alvarez Bravo, pre-Columbian sculptures from Diego Rivera's collection and numerous folk-art objects which Breton had purchased in Mexican markets.

        Lack of success, it must be said, was no doubt due to the fact that the exhibition was overshadowed by the threat of war. But it fuelled her dislike for Paris and the Surrealists as a group, and made her cancel a follow - on exhibition which was to have been held in the Guggenheim Jeune gallery in London.
