Frida Kahlo was so intensely introspective that she rarely painted anything other than herself. Her physical body was wracked with pain and disfigurement. She turned her image into metaphors for the universe, the world, love, politics, sorrow, despair, even a mirror to ourselves. Her lifelong passionate love with Diego Rivera, another enormously skilled painter, fueled her passions. Her iconic style of environment and dress have only underscored her surreal paintings and created an indelible brand for the cult of Kahlo.

The Short Biographies series features short, intriguing, and entertaining biographies of world-renowned figures. Each beautiful hardcover book includes an interesting retelling of a single person's life, suitable for young adults and adults alike. These little gems will become beloved souvenirs of a favorite artist or a memorable trip to the museum.

About the Artist, Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo (born July 6, 1907, Coyoacán, Mexico—died July 13, 1954, Coyoacán) 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).
