Frida Kahlo at the Fashion Museum in Paris

The full name for Frida Kahlo was Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderon. The artist was a Mexican painter.

Her work is renowned for its numerous self-portraits, portraits, and other pieces that are inspired by the natural world and artifacts from Mexico.

In 1925, she started working in the evenings to support her family. After a short stint as a stenographer, she eventually became an apprentice in engraving, paid by Fernandez.

Most of the artworks Kahlo created during this period included portraits of her, the sisters she had, as well as her friends from school.

The year was 1930. Kahlo began to be introduced to American artists like Edward Weston, Ralph Stackpole, the late Timothy Pflueger, and Ralph Stackpole. Pflueger, and Nickolas Muray.

1934 was the last time Kahlo created no more paintings, and she only made two the following year due to health problems. 

Between 1937 and 1938, Kahlo's art career was highly successful after her divorce and later reconciliation with Rivera.

Hair is also used as the symbol of growth and femininity in the paintings of Kahlo and Self-Portrait with Cropped Hair.

Kahlo painted herself in an outfit for a man and cut off her long hair that she cut off.
