Frida Kahlo Starts Keeping a Diary

She became very depressed and in 1944 she began keeping a diary to document her emotional feelings in text and drawings.

She continued to make entries in the diary until her death ten years later. This diary would later become the key to better understanding the woman and her art.

The year of 1942 marked the beginning of Frida's Diary, pages that contained diverse notes of drawing, declarations of love to Diego Rivera, phrases that remarked her solitude, her tortured body, her vision of the world, the Earth and the life. She participated in the foundation of the Seminary of Mexican Culture, and exposed in the Museum of Modern Art of New York.

Frida begins a diary which she will keep until her death.
