///////////// Frida Kahlo HISTORY
was born on July 6, 1907 in Coyoacán, a southern suburb of Mexico City, the third daughter of a German father and a mother of Spanish and Native American descent.
Her life was punctuated by adversity, beginning with polio at age six that left her with a permanent limp.
In 1922 she entered the Escuela Nacional Preparatoria with plans to study medicine.
She was one of only thirty-five girls out of about two thousand students at the prestigious school.
It was here that she met Diego Rivera for the first time.
In 1925, a streetcar collided with a bus on which Kahlo was traveling, an accident that left her with numerous broken bones and serious internal injuries.
She began to paint during her recuperation.
Soon thereafter, she met Rivera again, and in 1929 they were married.
Kahlo and Rivera associated with an eccentric group of other intellectuals, political revolutionaries, and artists at home and abroad.
Their relationship was tumultuous—neither was faithful to the other, and Rivera’s affair with Kahlo’s younger sister Cristina proved particularly traumatic.
Kahlo was openly bi-sexual and took as one of her LOVERS Communist leader Leon Trotsky during his exile in Mexico.
Kahlo and Rivera divorced in 1940, only to remarry shortly thereafter.
Kahlo had never fully recovered from her injuries from the bus accident, and in the early 1940s her health began to deteriorate, as her reputation as an artist continued to grow.
She died in her sleep in 1954 at the age of 47.
