Frida Kahlo (1907-1954)

Mexican Painter Frida Kahlo was gravely injured in a bus accident in 1925. She began to paint during her long and difficult convalescence, and the painful consequences of the accident impregnated her paintings with frequent references to suffering and death.

Diego Rivera, to whom she would show her canvases, encouraged her to continue painting. He became later her husband. Kahlo's work, containing many self-portraits, bears traces of Mexican Popular Art and Surrealism.
