Frida Kahlo. Henry Ford Hospital (La Cama Volando), 1932. Oil on canvas.
In Henry Ford Hospital, Kahlo deals directly with her own mortality and her inability to have children. Kahlo dealt directly with death her entire life. At the age of three the Mexican Revolution started, bringing here up in a world fraught with gunfights and banditos. At six years old, she was struck down by polio, which left one leg thinner than the other. She also witnessed many street fights between Mexican revolutionaries while studying in college. Finally, when she was 18, she was involved in a tragic bus accident, which left many people dead. Kahlo was injured so seriously that she suffered severe pain for the rest of her life, and she was never able to have a child with her husband, Diego Rivera.
