A bit of Frida’s story

Frida Kahlo was born in Coyoacán, a village on the outskirts of Mexico City (now one of the delegations of the capital), on July 6, 1907.

A terrible event marked her life forever on September 17, 1925, when, at the age of 18, after school, she boarded a bus with Alejandro to return home and a few minutes later became the victim of an accident caused by the vehicle she was traveling in and a tram. The bus was crushed against a wall. The consequences of the accident were severe for Frida: her spine broke in three places in the lumbar region; her femur neck and ribs shattered; her left leg suffered 11 fractures and the bus’s handrail pierced her left hip; her right foot was dislocated and crushed; her left shoulder was dislocated and her pelvic bone was broken in three places. She underwent 32 surgeries. Discharged from the hospital, she was forced into bed rest with a plaster cast.

This situation led her to read books on the communist movement and to paint. Her first work was a self-portrait, which she gave to the boy she was in love with. From this, her parents chose to give her a canopy bed with a mirror on the ceiling so she could see herself, and paints. Thus began the series of self-portraits. “I paint myself because I spend a lot of time alone and I am the subject I know best,” she said. After the cast was removed, she was able to walk, enduring pain for the rest of her life. Making art her raison d’être, to contribute financially to her family, one day she decided to submit her paintings to Diego Rivera, a prominent painter of the time, to receive his critique.
