13 July, 2016
Frida Kahlo (1907 – 1954), real name Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón, was a Mexican artist known by her portraits and her relationship with artist Diego Rivera.
Strong and independent, she is an inspirational role model. Her works reflect her tragic life, embracing a horrible traffic accident and countless surgeries, tormented love for the husband Diego Rivera, affairs with both men and women, miscarriages and childlessness, as well as political activism.
