Frida Kahlo (1907 – 1954) was a Mexican painter known for her powerful and intense self-portraits. She was born in Mexico City and died there; for most of her life, she lived in “La Casa Azul” or the Blue House. Mexican culture and traditions were fundamental to her, but her dream, when she was a girl, was another one. She wanted to be a doctor, but a terrible accident forced her to stay in bed for long time. At this point, Frida started to depict herself: “I paint myself because I am often alone and because I am the subject I know best”. Kahlo had a complicated marriage with the famous Mexican artist, Diego Rivera and endured lifelong health problems. Frida was also a wonderful cook who skillfully mastered traditional Mexican cuisine.
