How Did Frida Kahlo Die?


How did the famous latina artist Frida Kahlo die?

Jake, Frida was female. I appreciate your answer though. Thank you.

Frida Kahlo died on July 13, 1954.
The official cause of death was given as a pulmonary embolism, although some suspected that she died from an overdose that may or may not have been accidental. An autopsy was never performed. She had been very ill throughout the previous year and her right leg had been amputated at the knee, owing to gangrene. She also had a bout of bronchopneumonia near that time, which had left her quite frail.

ANSWER

Who exactly was Frida Kahlo?

Artist. Born Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón on July 6, 1907, in Coyocoán, Mexico City, Mexico. Considered one of Mexico’s greatest artists, Frida Kahlo began painting after she was severely injured in a bus accident.
Kahlo grew up in the family’s home where she was born—later referred as the Blue House or Casa Azul.

Kahlo was an internationally popular Mexican painter. She painted using vibrant colors in a style that was influenced by indigenous cultures of Mexico and European influences including Realism, Symbolism, and Surrealism. Many of her works are self-portraits that symbolically express her own pain and sexuality. Kahlo was married to Mexican muralist Diego Rivera.

Frida died in the house she was born. She was ill for a year, her right leg was amputated due to gangrene, and the official cause of death was a pulmonary embolism or pneumonia.

Frida kahlo mexican painter

Frida Kahlo is one of Mexico's most famous artists and also something of a feminist icon, celebrated for her passionate indomitability in the face of life's trials. She's best known for her daring self-portraits depicting the suffering she experienced in her personal life. As a child Kahlo had polio; at the age of 18 she broke her right leg and pelvis in a horrific bus accident, leading to a lifetime of chronic pain. Partially immobile after the accident, Kahlo began painting in the late 1920s. She married famed muralist Diego Rivera in 1929 and together they travelled to the United States, staying in Detroit and New York City in the early 1930s. In the late 1930s Kahlo had exhibitions of her paintings in New York City and Paris and associated with some of the most famous painters in the world. Kahlo and Rivera were both known for their extramarital affairs (Kahlo supposedly was a lover of Leon Trotsky) and in 1940 they divorced for a short time before remarrying. During the '40s Kahlo gained international recognition for her colorful and sometimes gruesome paintings (as well as for her bold public persona), but she continued to have health problems. She died in 1954 just after her 47th birthday.

Frida's art work was almost always her own model, his work and his actions and even her dress had no intention to preserve the beauty but the need to identify with Mexico, her beloved homeland. To grasp the nature of the artist and his paintings is necessary to put aside all kinds of conventions, this understanding requires that we locate in the context of history in that case the life of the artist. Frida herself, being a revolutionary artist, it's up born in the middle of political chaos which he lived his country, went through a bloody process of rebirth. This image, according to the artist, is more truthful than the act itself.

In her diary she wrote: "walled suffering is to risk devours you from within"

Therefore, she not walled , she expressed it in her constant selfportraits ....
