Frida Kahlo was an amazing artist. Her work explores issues that affected herself with honesty and integrity, which is why her paintings are held in such high regard. She was born in Coyoacan, Mexico City in 1907. She contracted polio when a toddler and was involved in a major traffic accident when in her teens. Both events had a profound effect on her life and work . Her paintings often explore the consequences of these events. She married the artist Diego Rivera, twice, and had a turbulent relationship with him. The video explores her whole life and the paintings that she produced. No other artist has explored their own feelings and emotions with such honesty and frankness as Frida Kahlo.
Some of the themes explored in the video might not be suitable for young children.
IMAGES: It would not be possible to tell the story of Frida Kahlo without the images of such great photographers as: Wilhelm Kahlo, Lucienne Bloch and Gisèle Freund.Thank you
