Births

  • 1907 - Frida Kahlo - Mexican painter. Kahlo was famous for her self-portraits and use of vibrant color. Kahlo contracted polio at the age of 6, but she began painting only after a serious accident that resulted in serious spinal injuries. She eventually regained the ability to walk. Kahlo used painting as a form of personal expression and therapy for her pain.[2]
