Mexican painters - Frida Kahlo (1907-1954)

Born in 1906, in Coyoacan, Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter, who is most well known for the self portraiture work which she created during her career. The intense vibrant colors, the "pain and passion," and the intensity, were some of the key features which marked the works which she created. In Mexico, her work has been celebrated for the emblematic, as well as the indigenous tradition; it has also been celebrated by feminists, due to the fact that she painted the female form, which was something that was not common during the period she lived.
