As a highly influential artist in the field of art, Frida Kahlo (1907–1954) stands out among other women in history.

Thanks to the hundreds of photographs taken by renowned artists like Manuel and Lola Álvarez Bravo, Nickolas Muray, and Martin Munkácsi, Frida Kahlo has become an iconic figure in 20th century art.

Frida Kahlo's journey into the art world began after a childhood accident.

Her work received acclaim from poet André Breton, who included her in the international surrealism movement and showcased her pieces in Paris in 1939, earning praise from fellow artists Picasso, Kandinsky, and Duchamp.

About the Artist

Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo (1907 — 1954) was a Mexican painter best known for her uncompromising and brilliantly colored self-portraits that deal with such themes as identity, the human body, and death. Although she denied the connection, she is often identified as a Surrealist. In addition to her work, Kahlo was known for her tumultuous relationship with muralist Diego Rivera (married 1929, divorced 1939, remarried 1940).
