Some Facts
The U.S. Postal Service issued a stamp in June 2001 to honor Kahlo.
Her father, Guillermo Kahlo, was a German who immigrated to Mexico. Her mother, Matilde Calderón y González, was of both Native and Spanish descent.
In Mexico, Kahlo is known as "la heroina del dolor" (the heroine of pain).
Her painting "Self Portrait With Monkey" is now owned by Madonna, who is a big fan of her work. In fact Madonnacampaigned for the role of Frida, in Frida (2002) as did Jennifer Lopez, and tried to get a film made for numerous years. The film was eventually made with Salma Hayek in the title role. 'Madonna (I)' loaned the painting for the first time in over a decade to the Tate Modern Exhibition (the biggest exhibition of surreal art shown in the UK for two decades) in September 2001.
Changed her birth year to 1910 in order to affiliate herself further with being a product of the Mexican Revolution, which began in 1910.
