The Greatest Artist of All Time

Forget about Picasso and Monet. If you're looking for an artist who's art screams who she is, then look no further than Frida Kahlo. This documentary is a wonderful place to start. It explains Frida's tragic life step by step in full detail with frequent visits to her house in Mexico and examples of her artwork. I saw this documentary and fell in love with Frida's artwork and I know you will, too. Each an every one of her paintings, whether gruesome or sarcastic, is an autobiography of the greats painter ever to live.
