Summary "This . . . biography of . . . Mexican painter Frida Kahlo uses a graphic novel format to tell the true story of the woman who led an artistic revolution. After an accident at age 18 dashed her dream of attending medical school and becoming a doctor, Frida Kahlo turned to painting as a form of therapy. Over the next few years, she developed an introspective and surrealist style that soon became a sensation in the art world.
