Frida Kahlo (1907–1954)
Surrealist artist Kahlo was a style icon and a leader in 20th-century feminist thought, as she pushed the boundaries of gender roles and the concept of beauty. In her self-portraits she famously dressed in suits to make statements of independence from feminine norms. And, as we remember from the 2002 film Frida, starring Salma Hayek, the Mexican artist was known to jump in the sack with fellow artists and some of her subjects.
Take a look at this three-part series on the artist, Frida Kahlo: Portrait of a Woman.
