Interestingly, in Kahlo’s case her self-portraits are not the sole source from the artist about her life,Salvador Dali paintings since she also kept a diary which as been published (both in the original Spanish and in English translation). This returns us to the questions that arose before for Rembrandt and Cézanne. One question is how an artist’s diary relates to an autobiography, and how each genre relates in turn to the self-narrative (if such it is indeed) in their work over a lifetime. I believe a diary is a distinct kind of self-narrative from either an autobiography or a series of self-portraits, and it is doubtful that proponents of the narrative self-constitution view really have in mind that the narrating self is writing something like a diary. Complicating things even more is Kahlo’s case is the extensively illustrated nature of the diary, which at times contains sketches for paintings in their own right. If there are three competing ‘external’ narratives of Kahlo’s life,Gustav Klimt paintings then which would be the correct one to refer to in trying to access her own self-narrative? Or is that something altogether different? As stated before,Pedro Alvarez paintings here too I find it implausible to identify the self-constituting narrative (if it exists) with any of these three public ones. I feel the same reluctance in these cases as I would in identifying the artist’s own narrative with even the best,Edgar Degas paintings most complete and authoritative biography.
