Gone But Not Forgotten


FRIDA KAHLO
(July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954)



Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter, born in Coyoacán. Perhaps best known for her self-portraits, Kahlo's work is remembered for its "pain and passion", and its intense, vibrant colors. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition, and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form.

As a young woman, becoming a painter was not a part of Frida's career goals. Her goal in life was to become a doctor but a tragic accident at age 18 changed the course of her life forever.

Frida was a strong woman but in a weak body....and in the early morning of Tuesday, July 13th, 1954, Frida died in the "Blue House" where she was born 47 years earlier. The cause of death was officially reported as "pulmonary embolism"



HER QUOTES:

- "Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?"

-´´"I leave you my portrait so that you will have my presence all the days and nights that I am away from you."
FRIDA KAHLO
