In order to create this site, I scanned in pictures from books- usually I just went for the best printing quality of each picture I could find. The Pictures are mostly scanned from "Frida Kahlo: the Brush of Anguish" and "Frida Kahlo" by Grimburg. The pictures from the Diary Section are, of corse, scanned the reprint of her diary.

Frida's Biography is taken from the LACMA exhibit, which I did actually see. It was the only thing I could find in both English and Spanish.

Some of the sources listed here are not directly used in the website, but I read them all in preparation for the website.

Your feedback would be greatly appreciated- tell me what works and what doesn't, and what else you'd like to see here.

This Page is not yet complete. Future Plans include a timeline and a bibliography written by me, as well as better scans on some of the pictures.
