Frida Kalho

Frida Kahlo de Rivera (July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954; born Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón) was a Mexican painter, born in Coyoacán, and is perhaps best known for her self-portraits.

I have had a look at the Wiki stuff, and saw a documentary about her somewhen around the time the Salma Hayek film came out. A fascinating artist and person, from what I understand.

Her house in Coyaocan is the main exhibit there. A few houses down from her friend Leon Trotsky.

Well worth a visit, if you can tear yourself away from the main town square... or the bosques...

We all have our faults. :-P

Hopefully still keeps its village character in the face of the city. I love Frida's stuff too.
