“They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.”

Frida Kahlo infused her canvas with her native Mexican birthright and the historical epochs of her life.

It was colonial and revolutionary. The abstract was all too concrete for her, as real as the prison of pain.
