Frida Kahlo died in 1954

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.

Australia is presenting now an exhibition devoted to her artistic path. We also highlight the exhibition at ARKEN called A Life in Art.
