Frida's portraits depict all of life's experiences: pain, sorrow, intense suffering, and great joy. Sometimes the joy is contained and private, as in her "Wedding Portrait." Similar to Van Gogh, her paintings celebrate the simplicity and courage of everyday life; as with El Greco, her paintings also depict the universal suffering of mankind.

By this time, her body was nearly worn out with surgeries and she was greatly dependent on painkillers in order to survive. Nevertheless, she was exasperated and furious when her doctor prohibited her from attending the opening and told her to stay in bed. Herrera explains that Frida took matters into her own hands in characteristic fashion: she ordered an ambulance to take her to the exhibition, as well as a truck to carry her bed. When they arrived at the museum, she was put into the bed and carried into the museum in grand style. Dressed in her most colorful native finery and propped up with pillows, Frida reigned over the event and made it into a true fiesta.
