Born in Mexico in 1907, Frida Kahlo learned about suffering at an early age. The young and indomitable Frida met Diego Rivera, the great mural painter, when Mexico was at a great cultural and political crossroads. They formed a legendary partnership, with a strong attachment to Mexican folk art. This book traces her extraordinary life.
