Frida Kahlo's life was short (from July 6, 1907 to July 13, 1954) but certainly full! A Mexican painter deeply influenced by indigenous culture, Kahlo suffered a series of physical traumas. She contracted polio at age 6, and at 19 sustained injuries in a bus accident from which she was plagued by extreme pain for the rest of her life.
Her tumultuous marriage with painter Diego Rivera led her to take many lovers, male and female, including revolutionary Leon Trotsky. Drawing on her personal life, Kahlo's work is characterized by its stark portrayal of pain.
This little set of sticky notes and colorful page markers celebrates the life and artwork of Frida Kahlo.
When closed, the book measures 3-1/4 by 4-1/4 inches and will fit nicely into a portfolio.
