    Frida's life as an famous artist

    I would reccomend this book to others readers. Who would like to learn more about Frida life. Frida lived during the revolution of Mexico. But she would have her own problems in her life. Frida was one of the greatest artist and also married to Diego Rivera who he also was a famous artist.
