Frida Kahlo bought a reverse glass painting from a market in Oaxaca, Mexico. She then placed a self-portrait, which was painted on a sheet of aluminum, into this reverse-painted glass frame that was originally intended to house a mirror, photograph, or religious image. This mixed medium creation, out of old and new art, is called The Frame.
