Frida Kahlo 1907-1954

The Broken Column (La columna rota) 1944

"I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality"

I remember passing through an airport bookstore and stumbled upon a book on this artist. I have just started reading about her life and work and I think she was extraordinary and very beautiful. On a fashion note, she inspired designers such as Galliano, Lacroix and Jean Paul Gauthier designed his entire 1998 collection inspired by Frida.
