Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) is one of Mexico's greatest artists, a remarkable achievement for someone who spent most of her relatively short life racked with pain. Frida expressed her pain through her art, producing some 143 paintings, 55 of which were self-portraits. To this day, she remains an icon of strength, courage and audacity. This brief biography provides a glimpse into her turbulent life and her symbolic art.

Soepel geschreven verhaal over het af en toe heftige leven van Frida Kahlo. Met een vader van Duitse afkomst en een Mexicaanse moeder, wordt een uitgebreide beschrijving gegeven van haar jeugd. Ook de rest van haar leven, haar ongeluk, haar opleiding en haar relatie met Diego Rivera worden beschreven.
Er worden geen hele lange zinnen gebruikt.
De werkwoordvormen " Imperfecto " en de "Indefinido " worden veel toegepast.
Het is een prettig boek om te lezen.
Achterin staat een lijst met “cognados “
“Verwanten “ : in dit geval Spaanse woorden die een verwantschap hebben met een Engels woord met dezelfde betekenis.
