I never painted dreams. I painted my reality. When Frida Kahlo was eighteen years old, her body was crushed in a horrific bus accident, but her fiery spirit could never be broken. During her excruciatingly painful recovery, Kahlo taught herself to paint. Kahlo's injuries left her in chronic pain, and her marriage to the world-famous muralist Diego Rivera brought her as much agony as it did happiness. Many of Kahlo's paintings are self-portraits. Her short life offered ample inspiration for her surrealistic, sometimes shocking, art. Readers will be enthralled by the story of this wildly popular Mexican painter.
