More About Frida Kahlo:
Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is famous for her self-portraits, and bold vibrant colours. Her depiction of Mexican and indigenous culture are central to her fame. She is much admired by feminists for her representations of the female experience and form.
Kahlo, who suffered from polio as a child, nearly died in a bus accident as a teenager. She suffered multiple fractures to her spine, collarbone and ribs, a shattered pelvis, broken foot and dislocated shoulder. In her lifetime, she underwent 30 operations. Whilst recovering in a body cast, she began to focus heavily on painting.
