Lola Alvarez Bravo, “Frida Kahlo,” circa 1944, gelatin silver print,  10 x 8 inches. Collection Manual Alvarez B. Martinez, Mexico City;  courtesy Galeria Juan Martin. 
Dreamed that I was a lady artist, living la vie bohème in an isolated rural town.  I was viewed as an eccentric in my small community, but generally well liked.  I was having an affair with my gardener, but she wouldn’t leave her husband for me.  All of my art included pictures of my dogs, deified and larger than life.   I was inconsolable when one of them died suddenly, and surprisingly it was my lover’s husband in whom I sought comfort.  He turned out to be a jolly sort and we soon became close friends.
