Frida Kahlo: Portrait of a Woman

Frida Kahlo was born near Mexico City in 1907. Her paintings were labeled “surrealistic” because they dealt with intense & very personal images from her childhood bout with polio, a bus accident that nearly claimed her life, & her tumultuous marriage to Diego Rivera.
