Frida Kahlo(July 6, 1907 - July 13, 1954) was a Mexican painter, who has             
achieved great international popularity. She painted using vibrant colors in a       
style that was influenced by indigenous cultures of Mexico as well as European       
influences that include Realism, Symbolism, and Surrealism. Many of her works       
are self-portraits that symbolically express her own pain. Kahlo was married to     
and influenced by the Mexican/Spanish muralist Diego Rivera and shared his           
Communist views. Although she has long been recognized as an important painter,     
public awareness of her work has become more widespread since the 1970s. Her "Blue" 
house in Coyoacan, Mexico City is a popular museum, donated by Diego Rivera         
after his death in 1957.
