Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) is the famous mexican artist by her own self-portraits. Her life was full of troubles. But due to her strong-willed character Frida could win against all difficulties on the way. She got sick with poliomyelitis in 6 years old. Doctors cured the girl, but for the rest of life she still had lameness. In 1925 Frida had a terrible accident. The bus by which the girl of eighteen went, collided with tram. Frida had been hurted more than the most of passengers and got a lot of traumas. All the year she was chained to a bed and then started to draw. Doctors had put her on her feet after more than 30 operations. She married Diego Rivera. Their family life was full of jealousy and infidelity.
Frida’s pictures are unique. In self-portraits the emphasis is placed not only on appearance, but also on surrounding subjects. Bright paints and fine details at hers works are symbolical.
