Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón
known as FRIDA KAHLO
Her auto-biographical paintings were a new approach to exploring female experience that would influence generations of women artists. She is known as "The Heroine of pain".
When young she was in an accident that defined her life and art. Recovering from multiple injuries, she began to paint. Today she is a national treasure in Mexico, and an icon throughout the world.
