Women in Art


Frida Kahlo
(1910-1954)


Kahlo nearly lost her life at age fifteen in a streetcar accident that crushed her pelvis and spine. During the next twenty-nine years she under went thirty-five operations and lived in constant pain. This physical reality became the theme for much of her art. Kahlo's portraits are unnerving because of there references to physical and psychic pain. She comboned elements from Mexican folf art and traditional Christian symbolism to make her own personal style. She developed a crush on Diego Rivera and then swore she would marry him. She eventually did so, twice, and their stormy relationship became as famous as their art. The Mexican government has turned her birthplace into the Frida Kahlo Museum.
