ABOUT FRIDA KAHLO
Frida Kahlo was known as one of Mexico’s greatest artists who painted portraits, self-portraits, and works inspired by the nature and artifacts of Mexico. Born July 6, 1907, she was inspired by the country’s popular culture; and explored questions of identity, post-colonialism, gender, class, and race in Mexican society.
In 1925, she was severely injured in a bus accident where she began painting mostly self-portraits. July 13, 1954, she died after suffering a pulmonary embolism.
“Frida Kahlo is remembered for her self-portraits, pain and passion, and bold, vibrant colors. She is celebrated in Mexico for her attention to Mexican and indigenous culture, and by feminists for her depiction of the female experience and form.” FridaKahlo.org
