Frida Kahlo (July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954) was a Mexican
painter of the indigenous culture of her country in a style combining Realism,
Symbolism and Surrealism, an active communist supporter, and wife of the Mexican
muralist and cubist painter
Diego Rivera. Kahlo was noted for her unconventional appearance, declining
to remove her facial hair (she had a small mustache and unibrow which she
exaggerated in self portraits), and for her flamboyantly styled clothing, drawn
largely from traditional Mexican dress.
