Frida Kahlo "one of the most significant artists of the twentieth century", while according to art historian Elizabeth Bakewell, she is "one of Mexico's most important twentieth-century figures". Kahlo's reputation as an artist developed posthumously, as during her lifetime she was primarily known as the wife of Diego Rivera and as an eccentric personality among the international cultural elite. She gradually gained more recognition in the late 1970s, when scholars began to question the exclusion of female and non-Western artists from the art historical canon, and the Chicano Movement lifted her as one of their icons. These milestones were followed by the first two retrospectives ever staged on Kahlo's oeuvre in 1978, one at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City and another at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.
By 1984, Kahlo's reputation as an artist had grown to such extent that Mexico declared her works national cultural heritage, prohibiting their export from the country. As a result, her paintings seldom appear in international auctions and comprehensive retrospectives are rare.Regardless, her paintings have still broken records for Latin American art in the 1990s and 2000s. Kahlo has attracted popular interest to the extent that the term "Fridamania" has been coined to describe the phenomenon. Kahlo joined the Mexican Communist Party in the late 1920s and was introduced to a circle of political activists and artists, including Diego Rivera, whom she married in 1929. She traveled widely in the United States with Rivera beginning in 1930 while doing mural projects. In San Francisco and opened his retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
She was working on a mural project in Detroit when Kahlo miscarried after a difficult pregnancy. In her recovery, she tried to sketch and capture part of her experience in, among her variety of drawings, abortion is the only significant one that she made graphic in its anatomical references to her miscarriage but powerful in its symbolism. Biographer Hayden Herrera noted that in the sketch Kahlo's body is divided into light and dark halves, revealing the two sides of her psyche and implying that for her, making art should replace making children.
