Frida Kahlo: Viva La Vida
Produced by: Katie Davis
Surrealist Andre Breton called the work of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo " a bomb with a ribbon around it." And Isanu Noguchi describes it as a private diary of herself. The epic work of muralist Diego Rivera, to whom she was married, often overshadowed its miniature detail. Kahlo said she simply painted her life. This week we present the story of that life, delving into Kahlo's work borne of the color of Mexico's popular culture, the political legacy of Villa, Zapata and the Revolution of 1910, the violence of a debilitating spinal injury, the pain of lost motherhood and the desperation of immobility.
