Frida Kahlo de Rivera (July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954) was a Mexican artist widely famous for her expressive self-portraits. She created her artistic works in Mexico where she lived her whole life. Kahlo created pieces that captured Mexico's national and traditional elements which were also known to depict diverse forms and female experiences. Kahlo’s works are both surrealistic and folk art. Her self-portraits are an integral part of her work. She was involved in a tragic bus accident that kept her away from the rest of the world and had mainly herself to paint. Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderon was born in a small town called Coyoacan located on the outskirts of Mexico City. At the age of 6, she contracted polio. After the bus accident, Kahlo abandoned her study of medicine and embarked on a lifelong painting career, mainly to cover her free time. Kahlo had the support of both her parents to help her build her painting career. The accident also made it impossible for her to have children, a reality that appeared in her artwork pieces. Kahlo created her Henry Ford Hospital (1932) painting, which pictured her bleeding in bed, immediately after she had a miscarriage. Her portfolio includes more than 100 paintings, 55 of which are self-portraits. Kahlo held her first solo gallery show in the U.S. at the Julien Levy Gallery in 1938. Although she was celebrated minimally at the time, she would later be widely acclaimed several years after her death.
