“…Frida appears to be simultaneously protected by the nurse and offered as a sacrificial victim. Nor does Frida look like a sleepy, satisfied, cuddled infant. The piercing look she gives the viewer seems to say that along with the milk, which she described as ‘saturated with providence,’ she also imbibes a terrible knowledge of her own fate.”
