Overview

Known as much for her personal suffering as for her art, Frida Kahlo painted her passions. Her moving and self-reflective work is documented in this one-hour program. Kahlo was plagued her whole life with illness, including polio as a child, a horrific accident in her teens that broke her back, and a leg amputation a year before her death. Her struggles with her body translate into her painting, making her a memorable contributor to the Mexican Surrealist movement. Portrait of an Artist: Frida Kahlo takes viewers into her famous Blue House which has become a museum. It also sets the scene for the social and artistic climate that contributed to the start of her popularity all over the world. ~ Sarah Ing
