Portrait of
Ruth Quintanilla


Between 1925 and 1927 Kahlo painted several portraits of her friends and family. One of them was of her friend Ruth Quintanilla. The whereabouts of this painting are unknown. The image shown here is a photo of the painting taken by Frida's father, Guillermo Kahlo. The painting is signed and dated in the lower right corner: "Junio 1927 - Frieda Kahlo" (June 1927 - Frieda Kahlo). It's possible that it is another one of the paintings that Kahlo herself destroyed because she was not satisfied with the results.

In the lower right-hand corner of the 1927 Kahlo painting "If Adelita" a portion of the painting "Portrait of Ruth Quintanilla" can be seen.
