The seller:
Original oil painting on a cardboard photo frame by the immortal Mexican icon, Frida Kahlo. Her insatiable need for expression drove her to choose very creative canvases such as this case, where she found an old photo frame from 1914 and used it to portray herself on it. The board has a few pinholes in it from age but otherwise the piece is in impeccable condition. In this version, she shows herself as a cockroach (Cucaracha Ranchera) with long green legs in front of a fiery garden. The work is signed and dated 1943 on the top left corner. Despite her naïve style, Frida would sometimes achieve a somewhat academic look in her paintings. Diego Rivera once said: "Si te fijas bien, Frida se parecia a sus fotos." (If you look closely, Frida would always look like her pictures). This is one of those works where she strived for perfection in color and shadows. COA by Ruth Alvarado Rivera.
Kahlo does NOT paint in this style. It's a picture painted "some weeks ago".
It's a FAKE.
NOT a bad painting but NOT painted by Frida Kahlo.

The seller:
Whilst the painting itself is unsigned, the mount bears an inscription 'Paul Cezanne 1839 - 1906'.
Yes, it's very difficult to make a nameplate like this.

The seller:
I don't think that we have to say more, this artwork speaks for itself.
Yes, the seller is right: this artwork speaks for itself.
All art experts can see that this painting has nothing to do with Paul Cézanne.

If you try and turn the picture 90 degrees it looks more like a Fontana, but we don’t think it is
