Frida Kahlo

Birth Year : 1910
Death Year : 1954
Country : Mexico

Frida Kahlo was born in Coyoicoàn, Mexico City, to a Mexican mother and German father. At the age of fifteen, when she was preparing to enter medical school, she suffered a road accident. Though she never fully recovered, and her life would be increasingly filled with pain and disability, she began painting during her recuperation from the accident. She sent paintings to the well-established Mexican painter Diego Rivera. Rivera encouraged Kahlo, and in 1928 the two painters married; their stormy relationship would last for the rest of Kahlo’s life.
