Frida Kahlo de Rivera (1907 –1954) was a Mexican self-portrait artist considered to be one of Mexico's greatest artists and still admired today as a leading feminist icon. Frida Kahlo began painting after she was severely injured in a bus accident. In a temporary state of immobilization, she was isolated from other people and painted to occupy her time. Kahlo suggested "I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best". Frida Kahlo later had a volatile marriage with the famous Mexican artist Diego Rivera and became very politically active. Frida Kahlo was deeply influenced by personal experiences, including her marriage, her miscarriages, and her numerous operations. Frida Kahlo’s art prints are often characterised by their stark portrayals of pain. She insisted, "I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality".
