In the six decades since her death, Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) has become one of the most celebrated and universally admired painters; her works have sold for millions of dollars in auctions and her image is made all the more mythic by her personal legend.Best known for her self-portraits – which exude beauty in the way she accepts her imperfections – Kahlo is recognized as a groundbreaking figure, ahead of her time in both aesthetic sensibilities and fashion sense. She is undeniably one of the most emblematic female painters of our time.
