Each “selfie “the artist painted speaks volumes about who this exquisite human being and artist was. Personalized history painted on canvas and on display for the world that she may share who she was as most people would shiver at such a thought. We are the benefactors of what was a revelation to the future of her life’s story that we may be pensive and know her entire story, that we may gain insight possibly for our soul. Her story speaks of a very loving person that had many types of people in her circle of love and affections such as Josephine Baker, Leon Trotsky, and many more. The artist was definitely not stifled by bigotry and ignorance. She was encompassed by tragedy, triumphs, love and much romance.    

Hall comments, “We are so fortunate today that forensic science is able to use state of the art technologies to uncover lost works of art that may have otherwise gone undetected. The Kahlo floral work herein that she painted on top of a very revealing full body Frida Kahlo “selfie” nude can be seen vividly by X-ray. The X-rays disclose a beautiful young Frida with lilies positioned around her, but the flowers do not obscure her body. She appears sensual in a pleasing pose. I have seen all the paintings in her exhibits that have been presented to the public, and the nude is the most beautiful, as can be seen even by X-ray. This may soon be one of the most talked about revelations in the art world as the story is captivating and the work is stunning. “    

Hall said, “I am hoping that the New York Times, or some other major newspaper or the Metropolitan Museum will investigate this work for Ms. Kahlo and present an in-depth story to the world that the world, that the world may see and know more about who this great artist was, as we will never know all. We are so thankful for the state of the art forensic science in authentication in art and its contribution to the arts that history is not arbitrarily dismissed out of ignorance, malice, racism, greed or any human deficiencies that cause strife in seeking truths. Forensic science has brought us possibly the greatest “selfie “ever by the artist. I say to Frida Kahlo and the Art World, that we will not let Frida down and we will get your story to the public.”
