You may not know Frida Kahlo yet, but once you have seen the Mexican painter’s bewitching face with its bushy arching eyebrows, you’ll recognize her image everywhere. Even on a U.S. postage stamp.
Frida Kahlo (1907-54) is part of the U.S. Postal Service’s “New Century of Stamps”—right between Lucille Ball, Peanuts, Carnivorous Plants, and Leonard Bernstein.
Her work has significantly influenced Chicana artists in the United States, and since the mid-70s she has been a role model for women in the Mexican-American and feminist communities,” the Postal Service explains.
