Like many artists, Frida Kahlo has achieved cult-like fans since her untimely death at the age of 47. Her artwork, in addition to her trademark unibrow have become iconic images that are recognized globally.

Kahlo was far ahead of her time, laying the groundwork for feminism. She had affairs with both men and women, exhibited tremendous pain and struggle in her pieces, even falsified her date of birth to align with the start of the Mexican revolution.

Celebrities like Beyoncé pay homage to her.
