Rare and Beautiful Portraits of Young Frida Kahlo Taken by Her Father

Frida Kahlo (1907 – 1954) was a Mexican painter who is best known for her self-portraits. Kahlo's work is remembered for its "pain and passion", and its intense, vibrant colors. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition, and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form.

Below is a collection of rare and beautiful portraits of young Frida Kahlo, taken by her father Guillermo Kahlo from the 1910s to early 1930s.
