“Orange Frida” oil on canvas by Barbara Rivera

Frida Kahlo is one of Mexico’s most famous artists and also something of a feminist icon, celebrated for her passionate indomitability in the face of life’s trials. She’s best known for her daring self-portraits depicting the suffering she experienced in her personal life. During the 1940s, Frida Kahlo gained international recognition for her colorful and sometimes gruesome paintings, as well as for her bold public persona. She died in 1954, just after her 47th birthday.
