Frida Kahlo called herself "e;Daughter of the Mexican Revolution."e; At the age of 18 she had a terrible traffic accident with the result of great pains for the remaining 28 years of her life. She created around 70 self-portraits. She painted when she felt sick and had to lay in bed. When she felt good, she preferred to live an exciting life. But while her husband, Diego Riviera, amidst the Mexican macho society, could live his immorality in public, she had to arrange her dates with other men covertly.
