Little Guides to Great Lives is a series of mini-books introducing children to the most inspirational figures from history in a fun, accessible way. This edition introduces readers to Frida Kahlo, the famous Mexican painter from the 20th century, well-remembered for her iconic flower crown and creative self portraits.
Frida endured great pain and hardships, between polio, a debilitating accident, complications throughout childbirth and a tumultuous relationship. She used her bright, vivid brushstrokes to express her emotions and reveal her true personality paiting over 50 self-portraits.
Today, Frida is considered to be one of the most influential and inspirational artists of the twentieth century.
