There is a clear evidence of the mood of Frida Kahlo in those artworks that she painted and that still remain in the Blue House, in addition to her sincerity and her stance towards the world. In Marxism Will Give Health to the Ill, Frida Kahlo refers to the trust in communism that was common during that age. In this portrait, the artist conjures the utopian conception of political belief that could release her from her pain. Supported in her ideology, she can go on without the crutches.
