        This is one of the most striking prints that I have ever seen. I would venture that there is no artwork out there that perfectly mirrors the mind of the artist at a specific time. Astonishing. More on that state of mind is 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. Canvas Size: 18 x 12 inches (approx.); Image Size: 13.5 x 10.5 inches (approx.). Buy Print.

        Towards the end of her life Frida Kahlo had to wear various orthopaedic corsets of different materials, some of which she painted. She decorated one plaster cast with a hammer and sickle, and another with a foetus.

        When she painted The Broken Column in 1944, her health had deteriorated to the point where she had to wear a steel corset. An Ionic column, broken in several places, takes the place of her damaged spine. The cleft in her body and the furrows in the bleak, fissured landscape become a symbol of the artist's pain and loneliness.

        Moreover, even more powerful symbols of her pain are the nails sticking into her face and body, recalling images of the martydom of St. Sebastian, pierced by arrows.
