2017 New Exhibit from the Hispanic Gallery
Frida Kahlo July 6, 1907 - July 13, 1954
Frida Kahlo is considered one of Mexico's greatest artists and admired as a feminist icon.
She excelled as a self portrait artist, reveiling pain and passion, and full of bold vibrant colors!
Frida had polio at age 6 and suffered a life time of pain. She began her painting after being severly injured in a bus accident.
Her marriage to Diego Rivera began in 1929 but it was very rocky and they were divorced and then remarried.
She did a total of 143 paintings and 55 self-portraits.
The Hispanic Gallery takes pride in sharing her art history and bio with visitors to the gallery.
