About Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo (1907-54) is one of Mexico's best known artists. She came into the spotlight when she married muralist Diego Rivera in 1929. In contrast to the grand murals of her husband, she began painting small, intimate paintings reflecting her inner life and identity. As she matured as an artist and in life, her paintings became bold, often larger statements of her emotions, feelings, and connections with the world. Her work inspires many to explore their own creativity and personal, family and cultural identity. 

 Frida Kahlo (1907-54) es una de las artistas mexicanas mas reconocidas. Se convirtió en el centro de atención cuando se casó con el muralista Diego Rivera en 1929.  Contrariamente a los grandes murales de su esposo, ella empezó pintando pequeños cuadros que reflejaban la intimidad de su vida privada y su identidad. Al madurar como artista y en la vida, sus pinturas se volvieron más atrevidas,  conviertiéndose en declaraciones abiertas de sus emociones, sentimientos y conexiones con el mundo. Su obra sirve de inspiración a muchos para explorar su propia creatividad e identidad personal, familiar y cultural.
