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.
