Frida Kahlo

(1907-1954) Since she was a child, she stood out for her rebellious spirit and her will to not look like anyone else. Thus, she developed her own vision of art as a means of expression of her inner world. Like Rembrandt or Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo tells her life story through her self-portraits. In her works we discover the events that mark her biography, such as the terrible accident she suffered at the age of 18, her marriage to the muralist Diego Rivera or her sentimental disappointments.

In 1953, Frida Kahlo attended her first and only solo exhibition in Mexico. She arrived in an ambulance, convalescing from an operation, and died shortly thereafter. She could never have imagined that she would become a global phenomenon for art and feminism.

Among her works are Henry Ford Hospital (1932), Las dos Fridas (1939), Autorretrato con collar de espinas y colibrí (1940) and La columna rota (1944).
