Frida Kahlo

Women Artists


"I do not paint dreams, I do not paint nightmares, I paint my life" declared Frida Kahlo (1907 – 1954). For her, the personal and the political were deeply entwined. Lizzie Perrotte examines the complexities of this iconic artist and the ways in which Kahlo channeled her own emotional and physical trauma into her paintings.
