  4. Main Menu Content Directions Quiz Exit

  5. Frida was born in 1907 in Mexico and died at the young age of 47. She had wanted be be a doctor, but experienced a horrible accident at age 18 that robbed her of this goal. Pain was a great part of Frida’s life, not only from having polio as a child, but also from the fact that she was horribly hurt in the streetcar accident at 18. Frida’s pride in Mexico is shown here not only in the tropical look of the painting, but in the pre-Columbian art of her necklace. Main Directions

  6. Frida used different symbols for her physical and emotional pain including hearts as seen here in this painting. In the accident many of Frida’s bones were broken including eleven breaks to the right leg, but even more terrible, she was impaled by an iron bar which piercedher uterus and made it impossible for her to have children. Main Directions

  7. She experienced over thirty surgeries in her lifetime and begain to paint during her initial recovery from the accident. As her own style solidified, she incorporated many symbols of her pain and heartbreak into her paintings. She did many many self-portraits, over 50 in more than 200 works of art. Asked why she so often painted herself, her response was that she was ‘so often alone, because I am the person I know best.” Main Directions

  8. Diego Rivera became Frida’s husband. He was the “famous Mexican muralist” and encouraged her to paint in the style of Mexican popular art, a ‘folkloric’ style of painting. She participated in a ‘Mexican Renaissance,’ returning Mexican art to its native roots.” This style of art used a lot of bright, striking color. Notice the pride and folkloric style in Frida’s use of parrots and bright flowers here. Main Directions

  9. Much of Frida Kahlo’s later art was considered by critics to be of the surrealist school, but she never considered herself a surrealist. She said, ‘I never painted dreams … I painted my own reality.” Main Directions

  10. It is ironic that the pain that had caused her to turn to art became the undoing of her art. Sadly, painkillers robbed her of her eye for detail and destroyed the clarity of her work before her death at age 47. Main Directions
