When analyzing and observing Kahlo's work, it is impossible to separate its themes, symbolism, and technique from her personal life. Personal and autobiographical features are portrayed permanently in her artwork.
The figure of Frida, along with her works, is characterized by ambiguity. Frida fluctuated between hope and despair. She liked to flirt and seduce, but at times she felt lonely and begged her friends and loved ones to visit her. Kahlo had a marked black humor. She loved to surround herself with exotic pets such as monkeys, spiders, and dogs. Frida treated her servants like her own family and students like colleagues.
Frida's work has been defined as surrealist, although she denied it until André Breton named it as such. Diego Rivera, on the other hand, would define Frida as a realist. Her paintings tried to rescue popular Mexican art, making use of ex-votos, religious and miraculous retablos. They varied from self-portraits to living nature scenes, from nationalist to realistic canvas paintings.
