Frida Kahlo. Fulang-Chang and I. 1937 (assembled after 1939)

Frida Kahlo Fulang-Chang and I 1937 (assembled after 1939)

  • MoMA, Floor 5, 517 The Alfred H. Barr, Jr. Galleries

Do you think it would be cool to have a pet monkey? Frida Kahlo had several spider monkeys that she kept as pets—the one in the painting is called Fulang-Chang. The pink ribbon that Kahlo painted around her neck connects her to Fulang-Chang, showing how much she loved him. What other details do you notice?
