"I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best."
"I was born a bitch. I was born a painter."- Kahlo
I have to say she married the wrong guy ! Diego Rivera is kind of an asshole, he promised to be loyal to her but cheated like a hundred times and ended up sleeping with Frida's sister. What kind of monster is that! but she also had a few one night stands with male/female lovers. Well, at least he was there for her at the end when she was dying and finally got her first solo exhibition in Mexico.
