Victor Hazon Hall, an independent arts and crafts professional, comments on a recent article dated 27-June- 2016 (https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2016/jun/28/frida-kahlo-and-diego-rivera-review-exhibition-art-gallery-of-nsw) from The Guardian on a new Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera exhibition. One of the photographs in the exhibition suggests that, at one time, Kahlo may have been pregnant.

Perhaps the reason is because of her unfortunate miscarriage

Hall comments, “Forensics in art authentication is very quickly becoming primary in the process of realizing that a work is what it is purported to be. The rendering of opinions by connoisseurs on works plays a vital part in the authentication process, but in light of recent scandals in the Art World, and especially in New York City, forensic science may be moving to the forefront”.

Hall consults with qualified forensic science experts across the nation on various projects and finds the field absolutely fascinating and totally objective. It is a non-biased approach in determining truths. The forensic work on this masterpiece was conducted by a leading Forensic Art Expert in Illinois that has experience with Frida Kahlo.

Hall said, “I thought the work herein of the floral by Kahlo was painted in the 1940s, but forensics yielded that the work was painted in the 1930s and that same science did yield an X-ray of a masterpiece hidden underneath the floral of a young Frida Kahlo nude. It is quite clear and vivid. The artist positioned with lilies around her nude body. Further, research suggests that the flowers may be related to “The Annunciation “ which is iconic in Catholicism and the Arts as Frida did borrow concepts from her religion.”

Hall comments, “I believe that Frida may be boasting of becoming, or is pregnant with child. It is no secret that she desperately wanted to have a child and this may be what this never seen by anyone today masterpiece is about. It is ironic that the full bodied nude is very possibly her most beautiful self-image, yet it is covered by a floral masterpiece

“I am going to consult with as many Frida Kahlo expert historians as possible in an attempt to gain some consensus in opinions on why the artist would create a work so beautiful and then paint over it with another stunning work.Perhaps the reason is because of her unfortunate miscarriage.This is a great find for the world of art, humanities, and art lovers around the world" , said Hall.

Hall states, “I am seeking major museums and exhibition for this work as I believe that Ms. Kahlo would have wanted me to do this work for her. The public will then see what I am so privileged to see and know of the artist as it is obvious that this work was very personal to her. If you are a major museum, art gallery, or a reporter and would like to exhibit or report on this work, please contact me."
