On moving to Detroit with Rivera, Kahlo experienced numerous health problems related to a failed pregnancy.

The couple married in 1929 [1] [5] and spent the late 1920s and early 1930s travelling in Mexico and the United States together.Even as Kahlo was gaining recognition in Mexico, her health was declining rapidly, and an attempted surgery to support her spine failed. Diego's incorrigible philandering – once with Frida's own younger sister, Cristina – only exacerbated her pain.

Her mother had a special easel made for her so she could paint in bed, and her father lent her his box of oil paints and some brushes. Drawing on personal experiences, including her marriage, her miscarriages, and her numerous operations, Kahlo's works often are characterized by their stark portrayals of pain.Her mother provided her with a specially-made easel, which enabled her to paint in bed, and her father lent her some of his oil paints.

The exhibition was a notable cultural event in Mexico and also received attention in mainstream press around the world.In addition to painting portraits of several new acquaintances, [26] she made Frieda and Diego Rivera (1931), a double portrait based on their wedding photograph, [27] and The Portrait of Luther Burbank (1931), which depicted the eponymous horticulturist as a hybrid between a human and a plant. Frida's mother, Matilde Calderon y Gonzalez, was a devout Catholic of primarily indigenous, as well as Spanish descent. The focus was on the figures depicted, and they seldom featured a realistic perspective or detailed background, thus distilling the event to its essentials.
