Latin American artists in the history of art. Born to a Mexican mother and a German father, Frida Kahlo who married to notorious Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, used the details of her life as powerful symbols for the psychological pain of human existence. Art historians often consider Kahlo a surrealist due to the psychic, autobiographical issues she dealt with in her art. Kahlo herself, however, rejected any association with the Surrealists. She began painting seriously as a young student, during convalescence from an accident that tragically left her in constant pain. Hr life became a heroic and tumultuous battle for survival against illness and stormy personal relationships. To read Kahlo’s paintings solely as autobiographical overlooks the powerful political dimension of her art. Kahlo was deeply nationalistic and committed to her Mexican Heritage.
