Frida Kahlo in her studio at Casa Azul. By this point, Kahlo had been painting for only four years. She started while recuperating from a near-fatal streetcar accident that crushed her spine and pelvis, leaving her permanently crippled and unable to bear children. Possibly to minimize the physical evidence of the damage, she began wearing the indigenous Mexican skirts and shawls that transformed her into a piece of multicultural theater.
