Frida Kahlo – Although she produced over 200 paintings, drawings and sketches during her lifetime, the Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo is probably best-known for her self-portraits; she painted herself so frequently because she was so often alone …. and she said, “because I am the subject I know best.” Born in 1907, Frida Kahlo died in 1954. English author, Jay Griffiths has written a fictionalised portrait of Frida Kahlo, her devastating accident and her love for Mexican muralist, Diego Rivera.
