Women’s History Month: Frida Kahlo Research by Luke and Mikhail (Grade 4)

Frida Kahlo ...was a famous painter from Mexico.

Frida was born in Mexico in 1907. At age 18, she got badly hurt in a bus accident and broke her leg and started painting in her bed. Then after healing in the hospital, she showed her paintings to a famous Mexican painter named Diego Rivera.

When Rivera saw her art work, he loved it and encouraged her. They married in 1929, divorced in 1939, but remarried in 1941. Frida was inspired by her life but also included skulls, daggers, and bleeding hearts in her art to show her pain. Frida Kahlo became very famous in the U.S. and Europe before becoming famous in Mexico.
