Life after accident



Frida draw the story about the accident.


Ms. Frida Kahlo’s life turns upside down after the accident.  She passed several months in convalescence.  Is here were she took painting more serious.  Kahlo creates her first serious painting in less than a month.

This paint has one big purpose.  To get Alejandro back after he left her some time before the accident.



This became Frida’s first serious painting.  She called it “Autorretrato de terciopelo”


From this moment on she will continuously be painting self-portraits.


During the time when Kahlo was in bed immobilized, her mother commanded to do a special easel that let Frida paint from her position.  It’s his father who gave her the old brushes and paintings.


By 1928 her relation with Alejandro was over.  It’s by this time when she finally meets Diego Rivera, who will soon be her eternal love. Diego encourage the young Kahlo to continue with the artistic career.  Suddenly he started flirting with her.




Here begins a new era in Frida’s life.  With Diego’s flirting and she accepting it, the complicated life she knew was about to get even worst.
