Where is Frida Kahlo from? Where did she grow up? What time period?
Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907 in Coyoacán, Mexico City, Mexico (Making her a Cancer just like me! Aaa sorry, I don't think anybody cares haha.) Anyway she was born around the time the Mexican Revolution occurred (1910-1920). Frida grew up in a village in the outskirts of Mexico, referred as the Blue House or Casa Azul. She had three sisters, two older ones and one younger sibling. If she were to describe her childhood memories using only 3 words she would say it was rather “very,very,sad”. Due to her mother being a calculating, cruel, and a very hardcore religious person. Her mother was very tense to her and her siblings, to the point where her oldest sister, Matilde, ran away from her family for several years. She also had to deal with both of her parents often becoming sick, until she was sick herself with polio. This caused her to be bedridden for nine months. When she “recovered”, the aftermath of her sickness left her damage in her right leg and foot, making her limp when she walked. To aid her recovery her father encouraged her to play many sports that mainly male only played at the time, such as soccer, swimming, and even wrestling.
