Frida Kahlo working.

[x][x]

After a traffic accident in 1925, Kahlo was bedridden in a full body cast for three months. 

Her mother had a special easel made for her so she could paint in bed.

Kahlo abandoned the study of medicine to begin a painting career. She painted to occupy her time during her temporary immobilization. Her self-portraits were a dominant part of her life when she was immobile for three months after her accident. Kahlo once said, “I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best.”
