Frida Kahlo — Self-portrait with Cropped Hair, 1940.

The top lyric translates: "Look if I loved you, it was for your hair. Now that you are bald, I don't love you anymore." She painted this after divorcing from her husband, the Mexican muralist, Rivera.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

At the Moulin Rouge, 1892

Salon at the Rue des Moulins, 1894

The Clownesse Cha-U-Kao at Moulin Rouge, 1895

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec is my new favorite. I saw a bunch of his paintings today at the Art Institute of Chicago's art museum. He was from France, talented in not only painting, but also print-making and illustration. His paintings draw you back into another lifetime, one that seems so classy and almost magical.
