Study of Frida Kahlo

This is one of Arthouse's students working on a portrait of Frida Kahlo.
-Despite a life that was plagued by both physical and emotional pain, Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) is one of the most celebrated artists of the 20th Century. The amazing woman is one of my favorite feminist icons.

Typically, Frida’s talent was not fully recognized by the world until after her death. Despite this, she is now recognized world wide as one of the most innovative and influential artists of her time.

At the arthouse we strive to help keep the awareness of influential artists by using their work for inspiration and tools in teaching. This particular student is focusing on portrait study in Acrylic.
