A self-portrait by Mexican artist Frida Kahlo sold at auction on Tuesday for a record-breaking $34.9 million, the highest price ever paid for a Latin American art ever sold at auction. Diego y yo (Diego and I) depicts Kahlo's tumultuous second marriage to Mexican muralist Diego Rivera. Completed in 1949, the painting is Kahlo's final fully-realized bust self-portrait before she died in 1954 at the age of 47.
