Frida Kahlo

1907 – 1954 Mexico

Frida Kahlo’s artwork was deeply influenced by events in her personal life. Kahlo contracted Polio when she was six years old and when she was almost 18 had a serious accident.

Kahlo regained the ability to walk, though she would be tortured by pain and fatigue throughout her life and would undergo more than 30 operations for her injuries. "I never lost my spirit," she once said, "I always spent my time painting."
