This work was created in 1951 during the last years of Frida Kahlo's life. Kahlo said she did many still life paintings because they were easier to create due her health challenges.
Frida Kahlo is known for her many self-portraits with animals, but in this painting the parrot stands alone along the fruit.
Kahlo has become one of Mexico's most well-known artists. She often makes references to her home country within her paintings, such as with this Mexican flag.
Many of Frida Kahlo's artworks feature fruit, including famous paintings like 'Viva la vida', 'Still Life with Watermelons', and more.
