Frida Kahlo's artwork was inspired by the incidents that happened in her life. The two main incidents that made possible the creation of her artwork, like Frida and the Caesarean Operation or The Hospital, are the bus accident and her husband. Regardless of the awfulness of the two circumstances, she managed to get a theme of art as it is visible in her painting, such as Henry Ford Hospital.
The piece, Frida and the Caesarean Operation or The Hospital, shows Frida on the bed a healthy baby is lying alongside her. There is a floating head on the top side of the bed, slightly on top of the baby's head. The floating head is believed to be Diego, the father, and the description of receding hairline, double chin and bulging eyes shows it all. Doctors can be seen at the back, in a group of five performing what is believed to be a caesarean (this scene cannot be materialised in real life).
Frida Kahlo painted this artwork because she was in pain and mourning the fact that she can never have her own children. The psychological and physical pain she was going through couldn't allow the painting to be finished. Therefore, Frida and the Caesarean Operation or The Hospital depicts the exact what would have happened if the delivery was by caesarean. Her body was weak and not strong enough to maintain pregnancy for that long period. Also, several miscarriages and abortions were another reason for poor health to handle long-term stress. Frida and the Caesarean Operation or The Hospital also signify fear and hope. Unfortunately, hopes are unclear or shattered.
Frida Kahlo died on her 47th birthday at her Blue House that was later made a museum. Before her death, she spent nine months in the hospital going through several operations and still painting. Frida and the Caesarean Operation or The Hospital are among Frida Kahlo's most valuable artifacts. In 1958, Kahlo‘s birth home and the family home were opened as a museum and referred to as Casa Azul or the Blue House. Frida and the Caesarean Operation or The Hospital by is still in Blue house located in Mexico City, Coyoacan. Some of the other important artwork found in the Blue House include the Portrait of my father Wilhelm Kahlo and Viva La Vida.
