La peinture et le Journal de Frida Kahlo, lieux du questionnement identitaire

Abstract : This study will analyse the painting and diary of Frida Kahlo as areas where the artist explores her identity. Her output betrays signs of a dynamic process of identity creation, influenced not only by her life but also by the historic, political and cultural context in which she lived. Thus, after having taken stock of her life, defined her aesthetic universe and ascertained her intellectual influences, we will identify the role played by her art in the search for and assertion of her identity. We will thus analyse how the elements making up her personal identity can be read through her self portraits. Then, by expanding the scope of the study to all the genres encompassed in her output, we shall see how her intimate, personal preoccupations fit into the questioning of national identity which dominated the Mexican post-revolutionary landscape. We will then see that the artist's search for an identity culminates in a reflection on the place occupied by each individual in society and the world as a whole.
