Frida Kahlo was so intensely introspective that she rarely painted anything other than herself. Her physical body was wracked with pain and disfigurement. She turned her image into metaphors for the universe, the world, love, politics, sorrow, despair, even a mirror to ourselves. Her lifelong passionate love with Diego Rivera, another enormously skilled painter, fueled her passions. Her iconic style of environment and dress have only underscored her surreal paintings and created an indelible brand for the cult of Kahlo.
