Diego Rivera encouraged Frida to paint in fresco, a medium that Frida was not familiar with. Self Portrait, Very Ugly was the result of Frida's effort. Frida was disappointed with painting when it was finished, and threw it in the trash. Lucienne Bloch, a close friend of Frida came to visit her and found the fresco in the trash can. She rescued it and took it home with her.
