116: Frida Kahlo
Mexican painter Frida Kahlo is one of the most famous artists of the 20th Century!
She also had a crazy and somewhat tragic life, all stemming from an accident when she was a teenager. As well as creating masterpieces, Kahlo married the most well known Mexican artist of her day, Diego Rivera… both of whom had had dozens of affairs.
She always spoke her mind and is now an icon for the LGBTI community, feminists and people living with disabilities.
