A Vivid Portrait Of Mexican Artist, Frida Kahlo
1 August 2020 | by StrictlyConfidentialSee all my reviews

This 90-minute bio-documentary from the PBS Network looks at the life and times of surrealist artist and portraitist, Frida Kahlo.

Born (1907) in Mexico City - Kahlo was a self-taught painter whose work was not given its due recognition until some time after her death.

Through straightforward, voice-over narration, interviews, vintage stills, and numerous images of Kahlo's work - This presentation brings to light the constant physical pain that Kahlo had to endure all of her adult life due to a crippling accident at the age of 18.

*Note* - In 1954 - Frida Kahlo (47 at the time) died from a devastating lung inflammation.
