I read her bio and looked at some pictures of her work and came across this: "Aside from the 1939 acquisition by the Louvre, Kahlo's work was not widely acclaimed until decades after her death. Often she was remembered only as Diego Rivera's wife."

I find her fascinating as a person, but her work is inconsistent. some of it i like a lot, and some of it is pretty bad.

I've never seen anything by her that I thought was pretty bad. Could you provide an example of her bad work?

I'd prefer not to argue about our subjective opinions of her work.

Me too. I just wanted to see something you thought was pretty bad. Never mind; I can look through her work on my own.

most of her widely distributed work is good. there was a lot i hadn't seen at the museum, including unfinished pieces, which i didn't judge, and a couple i thought were awful. i didn't take pictures of anything i didn't like, though.
