I like her alot. She was very bold in creating her own visions at a time when very few woman did. Especially being from a country that did not necessarily support women in the arts. Her art is "all about her" but she had a very intersting life and really takes us through a visual interprutaion of it. I don't know where she stood with God though. I would have liked to see some sort of outward display of that in her works.

I saw Diego Rivera mural at Detroit Institue of Art this weekend, but I was surprised they did not have a single Kahlo. According to the lady manning the gift shop, this is a source of some consternation among some supporters of the museum since Kahlo stayed across the street while Rivera was making the murals and painted several paintings in Detroit...but I guess the museum at the time didn't think to buy any from her. 

There's a parable in there, I think.
