Google Doodle: Frida Kahlo Homage

Google is bringing a homage to 1 of the most famous Mexican artists of all time, painter Frida Kahlo who was born on July 6th 1907. The special Doodle depicts one of her self portraits.

Frida Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón was born in 1907 and died in 1954. She painted more than 140 paintings during her lifetime, many of them self portraits.

She said many times that she creates self portraits because they represent the person she knows best. Her work, vibrant , intense, inspired by folk art had a major influence on Surrealism, Symbolism and European Realism.

She was also known for being a communist and for marrying fellow Mexican painter Diego Rivera, who shared her political views. Their relationship was a very tumultuous one, both of them having numerous extramarital affairs.
