Frida Kahlo; Art or kitsch?

Frida is very popular. Some art observers scoff and try to devalue her. This is an indication of the wide social success Frida has achieved. This was denied to most avant-garde artists of the modern age, although they had always wished for it so eagerly.

All those who do not see art as a decoration or a mere reflection of reality, but as a medium for the transport of ideas and passion, can only rejoice in Frida Kahlo’s popularity

In her work I see desires for passion, emotional strength, resistance and intensity of life, which are missing in our plastic society.
