The artist Frida Kahlo age 18, photo by Guillemero Kahlo, 1926. Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907, in Coyocoán, Mexico City, Mexico. Considered one of Mexico's greatest artists, Frida Kahlo began painting after she was severely injured in a bus accident. Kahlo later became politically active and married fellow communist artist Diego Rivera in 1929. She exhibited her paintings in Paris and Mexico before her death in 1954.
Add modernist gardener to artist Frida Kahlo's long list of accomplishments. A new exhibit in New York City explores the relationship between her garden and her paintings at New York Botanical Garden. May-November. I must see this!
