Frida Kahlo was born July 6 1907 in Coyoacan, Mexico. She had an early interest in art. 1925 happened to her in a serious car accident and was bedridden, the accident caused permanent spinal and uterus that would cause severe periodic pain throughout their lives.

The two Fridas 1939
One of my favorite pictures of a colorful artist …
The film about Frida Kahlo, I also highly recommend even if it is a tragic life with much sorrow as the film is still quite happy for several moments and gives a picture of a still quite happy Frida. But you have understood mixed feelings and I have to say that I wrestled with both joy, sadness and anger during the movie, but I do it gladly again!
2012 I had gläjen to see Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera’s art at an exhibition here in Gothenburg … There were sheets and towels were nice and I really like some of Frida’s works. Diego was also good, but no favorite … Frida had more imagination and I like that very much.
