Frida remarried to Diego Rivera in December of 1940 after they separated for a few years. After this Frida's life seems to be settled down to some extent of calmer routine. They remained live separably through even they are married again. Frida still lives with her animals, dolls and flowers at countryside that she is interested in. They are still the main part of her life.
She drew many self portraits with her pets and this is one of those and she included her parrots in this painting. When this portrait was painted she was just remarried with Diego but was having a love affair with Nickolas Muray, who helped Frida with her first exhibition in New York in 1938 and was a successful portrait photographer. They met in Mexico at that time.
