By Jodi Roberts
 
In Self-Portrait with Cropped Hair Frida Kahlo’s usual lively and saturated palette is supplanted by neutral hues, her Tehuana dress by an ill-fitting man’s suit, and her plaited hair by strangely sentient locks that wriggle up from the floor and around her chair. Nevertheless, the painting remains unmistakably Kahlo’s. In 1940, in the wake of a divorce from her husband, the artist Diego Rivera, Kahlo turned to self-portraiture to express her deepest emotional and psychological impulses, and completed a painting inscribed with the lyrics of a popular song: “Look, if I loved you it was for your hair. Now that you’re without it, I no longer love you.” The work contains an array of influences and references that encompass both popular culture and details from the artist’s private life. An essay by the curator Jodi Roberts situates the painting in the context of the Mexican Revolution, the Surrealist tradition, and Kahlo’s history and ongoing construction of her artistic identity. 48 pp.; 35 illus.
 
Each volume in the One on One series is a sustained meditation of a single work from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. A richly illustrated and lively essay illuminates the subject in detail and situates that work within the artist’s life and career as well as within broader historical contexts. This series is an invaluable guide for exploring and interpreting some of the most beloved artworks in the Museum’s collection. View the entire series here.
