Ella Peacock (1905-1999), In Mexico, c.1968-1969, oil on canvas, 18 1/4 x 24 1/8 inches. Brigham Young University Museum of Art, 1987.

 

Frida Kahlo was born on this day in 1907. Kahlo, one of the most well-known Mexican artists, lived her entire life in Mexico City. She was self-taught, using art as a release and therapy after a terrible auto accident caused health complications for her entire life.

This piece by Ella Peacock depicts a scene in Mexico, Kahlo’s home country.
