FRIDA KAHLO

  1. 1. Frida Kahlo 1907 - 1954 Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907 in Coyoacan, a suburb of Mexico City. At the age of 6, Frida contracted polio, which left her right foot crippled. Very sensitive about this deformity, and this would lead her to wear, at first, trousers and, later, long exotic skirts that would become one of her trademarks. In September of 1926. Returning home from school, she was caught in a terrible accident on the bus that she was riding. She suffered severe injuries and was confined to bed for many months. It was during this period that she took up the paintbrush, to distract herself from the pain and boredom of her condition. Her parents provided her with a mirror, so that she could serve as her own model, and this was how Kahlo began painting the self-portraits that would dominate her repertoire. In 1928 she got to know Diego Rivera, an established and esteemed painter, twenty one years her elder. One year later, they got married. For political reasons, Diego and Frida moved to the United States in 1930, where Frida got pregnant twice, in 1930 and 32. But the injuries she had suffered in the bus accidente in 1926, made it impossible for her to give birth. All these feelings of pain at this misfortune were expressed through her paintings.
