You can always recognize a painting by Kahlo because she is in nearly all--with her black braided hair and colorful Mexican outfits. A brave woman who was an invalid most of her life, she transformed herself into a living work of art. As famous for her self-portraits and haunting imagery as she was for her marriage to another famous artist, Diego Rivera, this strong and courageous painter was inspired by the ancient culture and history of her beloved homeland, Mexico.

Great for all ages, this book was a quick and easy read suitable for anyone wanting to know who Frida Kahlo was. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Who Was Frida Kahlo? by Sarah Fabiny is a wonderful book and I learned so much I didn't know. I didn't realized what a painful,( physically), her life had been and why. I didn't study her at all in school or in college so this was all new to me. I just knew her art because I am an art nut but I knew about some of the great artist that I liked and her art didn't strike me so I never looked her history up. Wow, what a history. Wonderful info and great illustrations. I got this book from the library.
