Frida Kahlo was important to Latin American history because of her artistic abilities and medical battle. Her self-portraits portray her physical agony. What made her so unique was her gift to self-teach herself how to paint during her road to recovery after her bus accident. Frida is connected to cultural interaction for her beautiful artwork that has inspired nations. She is also connected to religious and ethical systems because lots of her pieces are related to her values and beliefs as a person.
