There can be no doubt that she was aware of our Fords involvement in eugenics. She was married to Mexican political muralist Diego Riviera who created such works as man at the cross roads which was commissioned by the Rockefellers for the lobby of the RCA building in Rockefeller Center.
His Fordship also commissioned Rivera to do a piece depicting industrial life in the United States, concentrating on the car plant workers of Detroit.
I wonder if she was aware of Ford's involvement in Eugenics , if there is some allusion there.
It is a painting by Frida Kahlo, Henry Ford Hospital (The Flying Bed). It deals with her own mortality and her inability to have children. A lot of her paintings address the effects of life-long physical and medical trauma.
What struck me about this painting was the cold industrial nature of modern medicine, and all the grief loss and loneliness that goes with it.
I don't know what it is, but it's not good.
