Viva la Vida, is a very important artwork, as it is known to be the last painting that Frida Kahlo did. Despite her deteriorated health, the title of this work is a tribute to life. The fruits and the way they are painted are exciting, because of the vibrant red color in the watermelons, and the phrase that the artist wrote eight days before she died.
